    Rig tension gauge

    if you have rod rigging, it is easier and more accurate to measure between the ends in the turnbuckles. for wire, you want repeatability. the loose works fine, but you might get slightly different readings each time you hook it up. shroud tension is more a dark art then science anyway, so balpark figures will work most of the time.

    J80 - Tacking Angle

    some people in The Netherlands doing winterseries on the J80's have been running annalisa software to fine tune their performance. no beef in that company, just that it seems to really help with analizing potentials and possible gains. no beef in the company.

    Great 35-footers

    J112. if you're only sailing Up/downs, get the fin keel instead of the standard and go for symmetric setup. boat is a flyer and also good to take the family out on.

    in the air

    would just a keel fin not accomplish the same? if they use a ram to move it, why put a bulb on the end? i think the friction of just a keel fin through the water would help with the stabilizing. i like the idea, and I get it. but i just don;t think there is need for the bulb on the end.
