We just added a code zero in an ATN sock. Hoist from a forward hatch
; set halyard
; set and tighten the tack; run and set the sheet; haul up the sock. Our mast
is 80 feet. The hoist is pretty easy by hand and can be done by one or two people in air up to about 10 true or 6 to 8 apparent. If we are jibing, pull the sock; switch the sheet and re-set after the jibe. Dousing is the reverse and simple. Pull the sock with the sheet eased; drop the tack; lower the halyard
as the entire sail drops through the hatch
. If a crew is available, drop the sail into the bag.
