    What's the black/yellow thing on the back of the main hull? Hydrogenerator?

    Traveler strength over span

    Also in the Harken print catalog there is a chart showing sail area and unsupported span which is acceptable for each type of track. I could not find it on their website . In this catalog it's on page 94 for the small boat track: http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/285b6223#/285b6223/94

    J/35 Rig tuning question

    Tyson, are you trying for a single all-purpose rig setup or do you plan to adjust across the wind range?

    Back in the days of the ORMA 60s a number of them broke off their windward floats. If memory serves it was thought to be wave impacts on the windward side forward when the float was in the air and not supported by the water surface. Load spike at the front beam junction

    Could also be an easy way to stiffen the back of the boat, more distance between the hull and deck skins making a bigger beam structure
