    code 0 furler for a jib?

    Ya, saw that item ctutmark... I don't think it's quite up to the load, but it's pretty slick looking... i'm not sure why they don't do something similar in a slightly bigger size... The ronstan 80 series piece looks similar but has basically double the strength.

    code 0 furler for a jib?

    oooOOOooo.... tell me more of this carbon tube... how do you get it inside the luff? zipper luff? and does it go around the forestay or is it parallel to it?

    code 0 furler for a jib?

    oh. so like all small boat furlers.... melges 24 etc... ya, i get that limitation in small sporties that don't have headfoils... is there any other issue? I'm basically wondering if i can sub in a continuous line furler instead of a drum furler... either way it's a zipper/pocket luff on a wire...

    code 0 furler for a jib?

    thinking of adding a jib furler. I like the look of the continuous furling units for code zeroes... seems like using one would keep the foot closer to the deck than the conventional drum furlers.... If the load spec works is there any reason why I couldn’t use one for a jib? thanks!

    Ever hitch a ride at Antigua Classics?

  10. 15.4 with a reefed main on the lil' sister last weekend... that was GPS speed against a bit of current so probably just over 16? 16 is the max polar for 25 knots of breeze so seems right on the money for the 23 too.

    What Paint to Use?

    +1 for perfection if you don't have access to a spray rig (or the skillz). I've had great results with rolling it on and it's pretty durable.
  12. Was thinking of being in Antigua during Classics next year... i know from time to time you can get a pickup crew spot during Sailing Week, but wondered if it ever happens that the classic guys are looking for crew... anyone know? Thanks!

    probably just the term the guy uses to describe his craft, but just in case... acrylic ≠ delrin

    What's the best small sport boat to buy?

    1.hate drysailing 2. like to fiddle with boats so not that interested in a class so closed that you can’t improve stuff 3. easier to get 4 crew together than 5 4. old enough to have seen fleets come and go so less easily seduced by what’s around now.... (rip OD starts for: Cal20, t-bird, J24, hotfoot20, hotfoot 27, martin 242, star, etchells)
