    anybody board the First 53 at the Annapolis Show?

    That pogo reminds me of when Land Rover started making defenders with V8s and leather seats plus AC . But I think the pogo 50 would be much more comfortable than a defender !

    Lionheart Lost Cape Brett NZ?

    My thoughts too wal . Maybe being only 100 odd miles out on Sunday with bluebird conditions was just too tempting and they decided to gap it

    Reefing

    I do this but without those fittings on the underside of the boom , when you crank in the reefing line/outhaul it pulls clew down to the boom and outhauls at the same time . The wrap around the boom with a bowline tied at the end still slides when it cinches tight

    Not fun?!?

    Yeah looks like aft navs but facing forward-ish. Is that a helmswoman ? If so I’m mighty impressed , those beasts would need a whole next level of skill sets to drive at that speed without stacking it into a lamp post

Zero Tolerance has been well looked after and is tidy inside and out. Her running rigging, Pulleys and winches are in good condition. The Layout is Quarter berths down each side, single bench seats on either side of the saloon and potential for a v berth forward which is currently used for storing sails.
