    @VWAP... Are you feeling OK, is there someone we can call for you? (First post I remember of VWAP's that didn't contain a story involving the commodore's twin daughters)

    How to stop block from scrathing deck

    On a dinghy I can see an advantage of a 2:1 system but On a racer cruiser with furling headsail I doubt quick adjustments will ever be required. There is a winch available if it needs adjusting under load

    Why do you need the block? Remove it and run it straight to the jammer and winch
  4. When trimming spinnakers or gennakers do you stand or sit? Do you change your position, W/L versus offshore distance race? Is there a wind strength that you change position for safety reasons?

    Which TP52 would you buy?

    Audacity was about the same size I think I did the delivery back from Devonport in 88 on Audacity, Bass Strait was a glass out overnight with reduced visibility... We had inflated goon bags up the mast to act as a radar deflector

    Were the earlier Chutzpahs smaller than 40'?

    Air fares make no sense

    I was told by someone in the freight game that the price of a seat wasn't important to the airlines, the real money was in how much air freight they could squeeze in the hold

    How many lines are on your boat?

    You should see @PhilipNZ car! The dragon is probably cheaper to run than the previous boat (not the 930... The other one)

    Magic 25 Rig Tune

    Matching luff curve to mast bend would be one area that the Magic logo sails didn't do very well
