The car on the traveler for my Leisure Furl boom. It's on the top of the cabin
.....or was. The car hit the end of the traveler and kept going. The boom ended up against the standing rigging
with me looking at it, "WTF just happened?"
We're newbies so all these things that happen are a new adventure for us. Granted, it was only in the bay and 20+kt winds, but we've only had the boat since August and my one and only trip on it was from Pensacola
to Corpus across the Gulf....but we're learnin'. Each day out on the water
we learn more and get better. And Corpus Christi Bay is ALWAYS 15-25kt winds. So every time we go out it's work.
So now I'm online looking for a new / better car, a preventer and those little pulleys for the traveler so i can pull the boom over with out smashing my fingers on the stops. Advice?
