    Urgent help about new membrane jib

    The above is good advice. try the tack down (won't be enough) Forward groove will not make enough difference. If I had this issue, I would be happy if the sailmaker would trim the 2-3 cm at that spot. Looks fine up top. I stand under sail and look closely, then lower sail, stick on a piece of blue tape, re hoist and adjust accordingly till I get the leach mark right on. Of course one could go up and do the same, but sometimes you're short on help. Disregard the whiners who tell you to return sail, and count yourself lucky that you will have a full size sail.. Still looks a might full full for a code 2, but the forestay looks a might soft...

    Urgent help about new membrane jib

    Trimming off 2 or so CM will not affect anything. Think of a pair of pants needing cuffs trimmed. If it is a code one, it doesn't seem too full (per above comment). If a true #3, its a hula hoop
  5. Turned a 65 upside down in the Indian ocean. Boat saved our lives.. I like the Holland 441's in your size range, but I like Ron and Butch..

    Tracking down Hobie 33's

    I don't know if Easom did it, but I don't think Bill opened the transom. Scott being a rugger, could have done the mast mod, pole and running rigging.. We did all the work on ours, including repairing the mast!

    No Longy, It's the boat that I turbo'd in 2004 or so. Easom must have done Bill's boat, but they went too far.
