I'm still amazed that he thinks he's doing himself a favor by avoiding the multi part block and tackle, as though this were some great cosmic con game that he alone is on to, and will not be taken in. Not for him, the fool's game of the 4 part purchase.
Two months of administrative leave watching donkeys, sensitivity training when dealing with non-Romans and then back on the job for the next sack.
A wordsmith of great prospects is among us, my lads... as though this were some great cosmic con game that he alone is on to, and will not be taken in. Not for him, the fool's game of the 4 part purchase. The back of his hand to the lever, the screw, the inclined plane - all implements of some tyrannical overlord, one to which he has gotten wise.
Primarily because you don't need to tension the leech to control twist. If you have a Bermudan sail without vang but with the sheet attached to a traveller, most of the sheet tension serves to tension the leech to limit twist. If you control twist instead by a strong enough vang, load on the sheet is reduced, but not load on the sail itself. If you control twist by sheeting each batten, you don't need to tension the leech, reducing the load on the sail. The junk sail also doesn't use luff tension to control shape, again reducing load on the sail. I made a 5 sqm small junk sail for a sailing canoe out of 80g/sqm kite fabric, and it worked fine. I doubt the same fabric would have stood up to even a 10 kn wind if I had made a Bermudan or even gaff sail.Huh, multiple sheets reduce load on the sail? WTF?
I get multiple sheets reduce load on each sheet but how do multi sheets reduce load across the entire sail? Max load is at the sheet turning block.

It's remarks like these that make me lose hope for humanity.
There was some context, i put the irony level on 0.doesn't it depend on the level of irony?
With how things are going my bet is on aquatic life doing that job, if they don't find the bodies in time.Which SV Seeker component will be the first to remove a human extremity?
