    Main halyard locks

    Harken makes a halyard lock for use with IMOCA 60 that would be good for a tri of that size. ask them. PLUS it works flawlessly

    An outrageous amount of work!!!!
  4. Mainsails are the same size or smaller than a TP. Jibs bigger. Dollar per fun ratio cannot be beat, and what other boat will surf mini waves in 9 knots of breeze carrying a full galley, enclosed head, and nice plush bunks, along with being waterproof.

    Spindrift 2 Jules Verne 2018

    When they were both in the southern ocean at the same time (when neither got the record) IDEC came from behind spindrift, passed within 2 miles of them and sailed away over the horizon. you can find a video of this from IDEC.

    The owner is russian. boat is going to be very late.
  9. This thread gets started every year or so. The answer is a resounding absolutely not. The crashes after the drugs would lead to big periods of going slow, which would most likely occur at the most inopportune time. Most of these guys even go as far as not drinking coffee nearly as much while on the water as the roller coaster of energy is not worth it.

    New imoca boats

    No, The volvo 70 rule did not allow inclined pins. This is not true. Perhaps with tons of heel the fin would become a planing surface with a ton of gear piled at the back, but certainly no incline.

    Sealing dyneema rope in a thru-hull

    As usual, over complicating..... if they have a disk backing (glass or carbon) just put them thru the drilled hole (assuming monolithic, not cored) and use a wedge of wood to load them as your sealant of choice dries. You are done.
