Thanks so much for your input...I can understand what you're teaching me and I'm glad for it. Although I did have to read it twice to make the lightbulb go on. LoL! I think our biggest problem was that the wind wasn't consistant when we first got hit...we could feel it shift so quickly, and I even watched the wind indicator to verify what I was feeling...and it was all over the place. We just didn't really know what to do with it. I guess we'll learn to heave to at some point.

I love the weight idea and will definitly see to it that I watch for problems when anchored so as to not get locked up on the line. All of this is good practice for a larger boat. Soooo much to learn and I'm loving it.

Can you elaborate? I preventer will stop you from trimming the main but shouldn't stop you from easing.
