    Furling Spinnakers on beach cats?

    When we first put spinny poles and chutes on beachcats, it was calculated that there was a 5% upwind speed penalty [That might have even been pre-chute times too}. Anything furled is going to hike that penalty up a lot

    Farrier F-85SR

    "What is the best way to get extra sail area on the shorter (NZ 8.5) of the two masts, and not get issues with weather helm." Make the jib proportionally bigger at the same time. Masthead rig? Jib tack further forward? Move daggerboard back?

    2019 Worrell 1000 Reunion Race

    Nobody wants to. You can stop and put them on a launching trolley if you like............but this is about winning the Worrell1000! Inter 20s have survived the race well and are built the same as F18s

    Trimaran beam cases - details

    So the water that fills the socket is not the problem - its just that it is filling up the end of the beam through the drain hole. Can't really see how to stop this - you are never going to seal the beam to float joint. If you had another hole in the beam near the hull, and blew air into that hole - it might force the water out of the end of the beam and up through the socket. Not a cure, but it might mean that you could almost dry the inside of the beam between sailing/rain sessions edit; Then again, a drain plug in the socket that you can reach from inside the float would drain more water. PITA to do though
