    Hey Jack. Thank for asking. Actually Subic was not that bad. Both Misty and Cheese are ok. And Jo in Manila is fine. Manila had a lot of flooding. It was the summer capital, Baguio, up north that got really hammered. Being a mountain top city, the winds were vicious. But the flooding was especially bad. That is what progress gives you. You cut down all those threes and what do you expect.

    What cloth for a Code Zero Jib?

    Not sure what rating system would allow this? I know under IRC you either have Genoa/Jib attached to the forestay or Spinnaker which is not attached to the forestay. And spinnakers have girth measurement ratios to the foot that would never allow you to cut a Spinnaker flat enough to go up wind.

    GPL Lite Skin

    As I know it, LtSkin is the racing version of Taffetta. Our wardrobe are carbon string sails with LtSkin on both sides.

    Pettit Trinidad - SR, PRO, XL, w/ PTEF, or w/ Irgarol

    The club where I keep my boat is very close to a fresh water source (river) and as a result, we have fast growth. So? Any suggestions?

    Harken head stay foil

    I am a Harken dealer but sadly I have gone back to Tuff Luff as I have had to replace my Harken foils twice on both boat after several seasons each time. Yes they do get brittle.

    J/29 Cascading Backstay

    What about a Wheel? The IMX38 and 45 had these Wheels below deck. Cleaner with a playable line?

    Lightning Strike

    I use the thickest jumper cables I could find clipped to each shroud and over the side into the water to hopefully re-rout a strike??? Useless???

    Powering T121 transducer

    I use a 9V battery to run my T121. I usually go for about six months till I need to replace.
