    Cruising on a proa

    Nonetheless, Cactus Island looks like a really nice cat.

    Cruising on a proa

    She doesn't look to be that happy steering the boat.

    Another Wahoo sailing video

    Makes sense. But those engines won't like all that moisture and water sloshing around in the longer term.

    Another Wahoo sailing video

    Very nice cat. What did you do down in the engine bays?

    overload clutch as anti capsize safety

    How about the mainsheet in sporty conditions?

    overload clutch as anti capsize safety

    Well, as Dogfish said, two wraps are not enough, as you found out yourself the hard way. Glad on your behalf that nothing worse happened.

    overload clutch as anti capsize safety

    Cleated in a cam cleat or in the self tailer? And what's the alternative in that case?

    Coolboats to admire

    It seems off because the cunningham appears to be absent in your picture as well :-)

    Is the mainsail tack not attached to anything?

    BP28: Revisiting a 50-yo design brief

    The spinnaker appears to fly very high on that picture. Is the pole at a 45 degree angle to the mast?

    BP28: Revisiting a 50-yo design brief

    Thanks, it's an Omega 30: https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/omega-30-s Designed as a family racer/cruiser with SA/D > 20, big main and a self tacking jib. Not designed to any rating rule and fast on all points of sail, especially downwind because of its relatively flat bottom. Proper wooden...

    BP28: Revisiting a 50-yo design brief

    That's a well thought out rig for a fast cruiser, with the mid boom sheeting and a self tacking jib for easy tacking into narrow fjords or estuaries, as well as the genoa for punching through old waves or reaching. Very nice lines as well. Unfortunately I'm not on personal terms with Ron...

    BP28: Revisiting a 50-yo design brief

    Sure, if it doesn't work for the client, then it doesn't work for the client. Going slightly off topic, if somone really wanted an aft traveller and outboard (double) rudders, then I think Elan had a quite neat solution on their 210. And for projecting, who's projecting here? My comment...

    BP28: Revisiting a 50-yo design brief

    I really like the way that the traveller is done on the Dehler 32, a boat which in concept is not that different to the discussed design. By the way, what is with you 'muricans using 'euro' as derogatory term? It's not really like you're known internationally as purveyors of fine taste...

    Leaving dock singlehand with a crosswind

    I've recently upgraded from a H-boat size boat (International 806) to a bigger, twice as heavy boat, and it's a lot more work docking singlehanded between pilings in a heavy sidewind.

    Tidal currents near Copenhagen / Malmo

    Sidecar is on point with his post. Looking at DMI (Danish Meteorological Institute), no such data appears to be available. I guess I know why you're looking for the data from back then, but the only suggestion I have is to contact DMI.

    Leaving dock singlehand with a crosswind

    Not a bad idea, but you can't really use that system when you get back to the dock.
