    How do you define bad crew?

    The guy who during a local distance race on a 54’ boat tells us his only experience is on beach cats right after he cuts his pinky and ring finger off in a huge turning block because he unwrapped the jib sheet and never let go.

    Roller furling question

    That all depends if your jib has hanks or a luff tape. If it still has hanks it will cost anywhere from $6-$10 a ft to install a luff tape. You will then have to take it down after use. If you want to leave it up then you will need a UV cover or a jib sock this will cost some bucks. I suggest you just take the jib down after use until your Genoa is repaired.

    +1
  13. there are ways to protect against the lee bow and yes I agree I have let port guys keep going the wrong way. But this whole waving you across crap is nothing but trouble waiting to happen.
