    dorking out super hard

    Similar phenomenon is witnessed by large underwater shock waves, as in sub surface explosions or earthquakes. Anecdotal witnesses attest that the shock waves will temporarily flatten the local surface wave state. i suspect that the current turbulence in the narrow, enhanced by the rugged bottom terrain, is creating a similar dynamic.

    18-19 ski season

    I'll start with a question for the PNW bums, my ski group is considering Whistler in early March, (typically their best base month) never been and it's on the bucket list, but don't want to get skunked. long range forecast is not good for the PNW, El Nino is the call now. question is how bad can it get at whistler if the forecast holds true and conditions look to be well below average? We've got a short window to lock in housing. Thanks!

    stupid trim question CE

    Weather helm is a function of HEEL angle! not as much CE. Depower/reduce sails to reduce heel. That will solve your helm issue. to prove this, go out on a big breeze day and just put a jib up, if you let go of the helm while the boat is heeled hard over, she will round up!

    Refinishing an old teak deck

    +1 teak looks fine! recaulk / rebed anything leaking and call it a day. you'll be chasing your tail trying to flatten all the cupping and ridges. if you want to do something, get a good teak 2 part cleaner system and a stiff bristle brush and go to town. you'll be amazed how good a freshly proper cleaned teak looks.
