    reefing lines?

    What holds the clew of the sail to the boom? Car in a track or webbing around the boom? Reefing the sail requires the reef line to hold the clew somewhere near the boom while the mainsheet is trying to pull the boom and clew apart. The max outhaul load is irrelevant when reefed.
  2. That isn't what I was thinking it would be Which class would be better for "Team Fat Bastards"?

    reefing lines?

    How much load can you exert via the mainsheet might be a consideration
  4. What is the minimum crew weight for the Tornado versus the F18? Is there an ideal weight to be be competitive for both classes?

    Not the only one to have lost their glasses it seems Instead of inner forestay... Try thinking as if you were taking the photo, sitting 3rd on the rail, behind the chainplate What would be connected to the chainplate... That might hold the black carbon tube...

    Soft hanks over furler luff foil?

    How big a jib are you looking for? I have a jib in the garage, with 5mm luff tape that is looking for a home. I will have to measure it if you think the luff tape will work.
