    Hello could anyone help me with rigging ideas for the controls that run to the bottom of the mast as I don't want to make a mess Thanks for that I read the whole thing it was very interesting ! Unfortunately I only have the big Genoa but it should do fine with the furller if the wind get to Hairy

    I'm busy cutting new sheets of marine ply for the deck then I'll give it 2 coats of penetration epoxy to just give it some strength

    Thank you I'll be sure to check them out
  11. I have recently bought an old wooden fd that needs some work but the hull is nice and sound . I have never sailed an fd before yet ever seen another one but my own . So I'm probably going to run into rigging problems at the end . I figured you guys might have some good ideas and knowledge about the boat since I'm only 16
