  1. Mate and I diving his V8 Commodore north with his ski boat in tow. Trundling down the forestry road - straight as an arrow for ages, speed builds up. Then suddenly its right into swithcbacks. Get through the first one, drifting through the second but all pear shaped for the next. I remember asking myself as we went off the edge of the cliff - I wonder whats behind that fence down there? Never found out. The trailer grounded and got hung up on the edge. Car is dangling by the tow ball. Clambered out and hiked down the the nearest farm house. It was Christmas eve, he was home, so got his tractor and dragged us off. Greatest holiday ever ensued.

    "Found it in the forest" - is that synonymous to "fell off the back of a truck"? It is nonetheless a veritable cornucopia of bits and bolts and solar panels... What kind of forest encourages that kind of wanton littering?

    Coolboats to admire

    to me it looks like the 'sleeve' is decorative rather than structural. I'm guessing that there is a boltrope/track involved and there is a flap wrapping the mast and velcro-ed down the length. Why though? Parts of the luff look really squishy

    Any guesses how the sail is attached to the mast? I am assuming that the masts are fixed in place and each sail hoisted on a halyard - what means is used to accomplish the 'wrap' around the mast? I am facing a similar problem

    Cold tar - It's probably going to be more able to damp the inevitable movement thats going to occur between the keel and the hull too - make for a smoother ride. "I wont know the results of this experiment for a month though..." Yup.
