    J80 - Tacking Angle

    Get the rig centered First. Main Halyard and a bucket (filled with water) works and see if it is the same on both sides. Some would say that there is nothing symmetrical on those boats so measure a spot from the stem - aft. then, do what everybody else says here... Sail safe! - Have Fun!

    Purpose of these white plastic cylinders on sidestays?

    Maybe put it in the radar reflector on the D2? Sail Safe!

    You will get nothing and you will like it! Sail safe!
  6. Both the City Dock and Patriot's Point have bars close by ; ). Plan to have you boat scrubbed at regular intervals. Good luck and have fun!
  7. I am not sure about the answer to your question. You are going to have FUN! Sail Safe!

    Beer can racing - When to protest or not

    1. Follow up with a friendly chat along with one or two boats that witnessed it. 2. Print out the rule and show him the diagram. Tell him the rules are there to avoid collisions. 3. Keep that flag handy and make it loud for next time so it draws some attention. He may get the picture. Sail Safe!

    SA Swag

    This pic was from CRW 2000ish. Not sure why I asked the PBO if it was ok to wear.. Sail Safe!
  12. While I do not own a new(ish) boat, would it otherwise be reasonable to only carry a liability umbrella policy or does the bank require you to have 'the boat' insured? Sail Safe!

    135% on a Tartan Ten

    Will, this guy, (who brings great beer by the way) has a 170% made from leftover code 0 material. He took the hit and even at PHRF 241 does really well in the light stuff. Not sure how a larger sail on a T10 might be though.. Sail Safe!

    135% on a Tartan Ten

    OK, Going out on a limb here. If the breeze in the bay is often less than 5 kts, what about a 170% made from code 0 material? If they are going to hit you -3 sec/mi , why not go for the gusto? We have a Tanzer 22 here that flys one and has cleaned up so much they dinged him -6 after the -3 for the 170%. Yes, there are limitations on sailing height upwind but, boy it is fun beating up on a new (to them ) J88/J70/U20 in light air. Just say'an.

    Stuff Happens. Too bad cus' it looked like a good engine. If it was in the shallows, maybe it could be salvaged as the kill switch, well never mind..
