    Switching from Rope Luff to Slugs

    Regardless of your boltrope issues, your safer with slugs. Particularly if you are shorthanded. As has been stated above, in a panic situ, the ability to blow the main hal and move on to another urgent issue is very important. good luck !

    Banque Pop capsize

    I would propose flooding one ama with sea water, adding weight (lead) to take it down. then pulling the unweighted ama over with a surface tow, then pumping /un- weighting the (previously) flooded ama.

    Ever paint a sail? Murder out a Laser?

    go to an art supply and get a bottle of black ink. it's pretty concentrated so you could dilute it... i'd pin the sail to the wall and do some crazy spatter/splash design...

    NYYC Manhattan campus

    Tried calling early Sat and got someone lower on the decision making scale than I needed. Got the msg that lots of hoops would need to be jumped through to tour the model room. that was all the effort I put in. We had a pretty busy sched anyway and had a great time in NYC none the less... Next time, I'll be more proactive in lining up the ducks.
