    Slack leeward shrouds

    Leeward shrouds on my 30 ft half-tonner show substantial "slackness" when sailing upwind in a 15-18 (apparent) windspeed. Is this normal? Shoud shrouds be adjusted tighter?

    His "Wanderer" book is a masterpiece. Read it 2 or 3 times, will read again.

    Engin oil expiration date

    No. If possible I would like to avoid spending US$ 70 in buying oil.

    Engin oil expiration date

    12 months ago I bought engine oil. I didn't use it at the time. Is it OK to use it now? Does oil have an expiration date?
