    paul there have been problems with the mast track especially the bottom when feeding in, and especially the square top. I have tried several times to get that black track, featured on the forums, from NB sail sports by buying online , it looks like it proceeds to checkout but fails. Do they actually sell it? Have you any idea why? rod

    PWB this computer is slower than me , now I get it. We know from another weta sailors experience what happens to dyneema and also badly made wire shrouds. rl
  5. I just believe the jib is choking when tacking and easing before tack and then retightening may be the go. there was no need to reef, the boat was no over powered. rl

    PWB the main halyard made of dyneema , well the silver rope stuff,works great. How could it be more drag, and less damaging than the wire on the ferrule.I don't recommend for the shrouds. Missing you at LCSC
  7. hi chidz sailed deserts yesterday in a fresh 20 knots N, real issues with tacking , that is boat going into irons thru the tack. I was thinking it was the self tacker being left on hard thru the tack and not releasing and then tightening again. What was your experience? RL

    has weta interenational adopted the new ratings for light weight boats and square top mains? I ask this because there are a few unhappy weta sailors in my club sailing older heavier boats which are now uncompetitive and unsaleable . the local agent is now sailing a new boat against us , he was quick before now he is super quick and says there is no need for a ratings adjustment for equity. i hope australian weta assoc. sorts this out otherwise members will desert the assoc. RL .

    i can't see the strop working if you want to adjust rake of mast, which i think has a big influence on performance. And the ball thingy don't see how you would need it, but hoping to see plywoodboy's application.
