    Best lazy jack system, dropping mainsail control

    Great responses, thanks. I like the sketch, and look forward to the photo of the test model. I like to know if anybody actually has some made with dyneema/spectra without rings or blocks, and if the line passes through the eyesplice without trouble. Thanks again.
  2. When I have a crew, no problem dropping and flaking the main. But, when I am sailing by myself or with one other, dropping the mainsail and flaking it is a real pain and almost impossible in breeze. I have done the google search, but hope you can lead me to the best system, one that I can move forward or get out of the way when racing.

    Heavy Metal

    Thanks for the correction, the transom is a sweet look. The boat is well sailed.

    Heavy Metal

    After the owner of Heavy Metal passed away, a friend of the family had the boat shipped to Harahan, a suburb of New Orleans, to a warehouse below the Huey P. Long bridge. The new owner had a steel fabricating business and the dream was to fit out the interior and take the boat cruising. I saw the boat there 20 years ago, don't know what happened after that. The past couple of years Lee Creekmore has been successfully sailing his self designed / built wooden boat "Scoundrel" in the Gulf Yachting Association Challenge Cup series as an entry from the Mobile Yacht Club.

    Hull profile is very similar to the Viva 27. Much nicer, more modern deck layout.

    Great Circle Sails?

    Care to explain? Or is it sarcasm because you don't know anything about the sail maker Great Circle Sails?

    Great Circle Sails?

    (Posted in Cruising Anarchy, but since I race I thought it better to post here also.) 41 ft C/R looking for a new main, and have a quote from Great Circle. While I know Brian Hancock gets some grief here, I tend to trust his knowledge. Anyone with first/second hand experience with their sails?

    Foam backed vinyl liner

    Beneteau uses a foam backed liner in the cabins of its cruising boats. Over time the adhesive fails and the vinyl falls. Has anyone successfully re-applied the vinyl. how did you do it? Alternatives to re-install?

    Watching the Hobart in the US

    Is the start replay available anywhere? In past years it was easy to find. All the You tube videos state it is unavailable.

    Navigation App for Amazon Fire?

    Does the Amazon Fire have gps, or does it need something like a Bad Elf?

    North sails ,pricing, discounts

    I am in the market for new race sails. Longer that a carbon tri-radial panel sail from one of the other bigs (UK, Quantum, Doyle, etc.)? Why do you say that? At what premium cost? Average useful life? Thanks for any info.
