    Flying Tiger

    I have an old Farr 1020 with oversize sym chute and one halyard. On the rare occasions we had to change just drop one to deck slam on halyard and send new one up. We usually wasted more time worrying about it than actually doing it.

    Steep Ramp Anarchy

    Homer, AK has well over 20' tide range. The ramps are steep and long.

    I love the part about not having done anything to improve boat speed.

    Brought On Some Tears

    My dad bought medicine by the case. When the jar he was using ran out he bought another case.........We threw away many thousand dollars of old supplements after he died.

    VOR Man Overboard

    Looking at some pictures, of SCA at least, they do have jacklines in the cockpit. But all it takes is one person going foeward and one going aft on the same line and somebody unclips. Sure there are ways to do it but they are a PITA and people just don't always do it the safest way. If they were totally risk averse they would not be sailing in the Southern Ocean on those boats. And sure they could put in rules that a boat is DSQ'd if anybody is seen unclipped but I suspect few to none of the boats would pass that test 100% of the time.

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Seemed to me like they were sailing along near the edge of the zone. All the VOR boats had to go by, their choice how close they went.

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    I used those on my floorboards. Mount them with the radiused part on the underside of the floorboard and cut/sand the top flush.

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    I am having trouble with the general comments that 20 knots is too fast for sailing at night in waters with any amount of traffic. I can go that fast on a bicycle. In a car it feels glacial. Given a good watch and identifiable objects ahead 20 knots is not fast.

    Storms and boat improvements

    Sure if you pull the Traveller up it changes the helm. But if you put the boom back exactly where it was before by easing the sheet and tightening the vang you will get the original helm back.

    I wonder if anyone thinks end boom v mid boom sheeting changes helm?

    Storms and boat improvements

    If the boom is in the exact same spot relative to the boat, handling will be the same. It does not matter what system you use to get it there. One system may be more cumbersome to move but once there the overall force on the boat is the same.
