    Connect Low Friction Ring to boom

    Some advice I was given by Pillow (May he RIP)... Better to break $3 worth of dyneema than to break $2000 worth of carbon boom Instead of 6mm dyneema, we used 4mm for a boom vang on a Magic 25

    Life is good, I am still working, no traffic on the roads, food in the fridge and toilet paper to burn!

    The red/blue combination I have seen on my hearing aids.. Red is for right, Blue is for left.. If took me awhile to sort that out

    Shots taken from leeward and behind... both tapes should be visible Shots taken from windward and behind... only windward tape should be visible Shots taken from behind... both tapes visible (edge on so will appear as lines) and the space between skins will be obvious These are my basic rules for working out what is going on in photos. Foil position helps but not when both are down!

    You would have more photos than most to compare. Thanks for all the photos, they are keeping me sane whilst in lock down here in Melbourne. If only there was a way to get your camera above the action... say from a plane.

    Which photo are you referring to? Photos taken from the windward side don’t show the coloured leech tapes
