    what’s missing? on front page

    I would have expected something a bit more modern and easier to read/use. Seems like it is an old elevator control pad...

    Rudders and roundup

    Maybe the jib has too much twist in it, and it is letting the bow come up. Get the lead correct on the jib and see if helps hold the bow down instead of fighting the boat with that much rudder. Then trim the main correctly and drop the traveler to leeward to reduce the weather helm.

    Help me out with some MORC History

    I don't think this is a MORC boat, but the size and price seems good for a boat that might be fun to sail. https://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/boa/d/sequim-1981-santana-23d-sailboat-trailer/7145797635.html

    Lifting bridle repair/build

    I've been sailing Stars since 1995 and I feel most comfortable working under the boat when I have these holding the boat up. The stuff from Melges is good and rated for the weight. To save a little you can get the thumb screw shackles, it just takes a minute longer to set up in the boat. Only matters when you are running late to make it onto the tow out to the races!! I think you need to get 2 of each - https://shop.melges.com/product-tag/melges-24-lifting-strap/ https://shop.melges.com/product/melges-24/hull-melges-24/melges-24-lifting-strap-snap-hook/ Other shackle option - https://www.amazon.com/Wichard-Captive-Shackles-locking-shackle/dp/B00DH44228
  5. Loosen the bolts a little then wrap some of the very thin Spectra/Dyneema back and forth then re-tighten. Just like your red lines you drew on the photo.
  6. Ok, I'll admit, I haven't read every post. But didn't the original video of the boat show it with the mast down on the deck??? Where did it go???

    Seascape 27

    How will the swing keel work on a crane hoist for launching? I am used to boats like a melges 24 were the keel is attached to the lifting bridle when launching the boat.
  12. BUMP, this guy has got to be close to launching/sinking. Any updates from the people nearby??
