    Looks good.

    Dang. So my boat is slow, ugly, and dangerous...

    I certainly like to hear about this more. Care to share?

    I'm not sure what TBone is referring to, but I think it's very unlikely that the PO broke the stick and then set it up like that again. I believe that you saw pictures of it inverting, but we didn't have any issues with that this year and so I have to think it was due to far too little shroud tension.

    Oh really? First I've heard of that...

    The Facnor is pretty low-profile as far as furlers go but short of ditching it, that's as low as it gets. I think we'll stick with the convenience for now. We may try to beef up the attachment at some point, but on the other hand it doesn't show any obvious signs of fatigue after 12 years...

    Yeah - not a great picture but it’s all I had. It looks off center because the weight of the furler and foil is pulling it over.

    It's a standard t-ball fitting, so yes it has a bend in it by design. This was prior to stepping last season. Someone asked for a picture of how the mod was done so this was the easiest way to share it...

    Still has PBO rigging as far as I know. And we owe them 6 sec/mile...

    Had a chance to sail against the former Exigent on Saturday. Unfortunately the first leg was a light upwind through the 40 boats that started ahead of our class. They slipped away and we were playing catch-up the rest of the day. Long, light broad reach, then a tight power reach in 11-14 kts that put our rudders to work and then cracked off a little more to the finish in 10-15 kts. Ended up 5th out of 21 or so. Nice way to end the season.

    Finally rigged the bobstay yesterday. With the tension from the shockcord the pole binds up when we extend it and it's hard to get the last couple inches. Anyone else have this problem?

    It wasn't as close as it looks, but the line was skewed so there was quite a party at the pin. We also had the added fun of a large ship bearing down on the fleet right as we were approaching the first mark. One of the complications of racing in a busy harbor. Yes, we're steadily making small improvements that add up to more enjoyable sailing. Still a long way to go in learning the boat, but it definitely feels much more manageable now. We have our first longer race in a couple weeks and then that's it for the season.
