Re: Sailors Run

G'day, El Ping,

Maybe he should have bought himself a newer headsail, eh?

Re: Sailors Run

LOL We have hank on sails that always come in and out of the companionway (dinghy over the forehatch) so very familiar with that wrestling match with the bigger sails. Better to gasket them as a sausage and feed them along as a snake that to try and pack them in a bag though!

Re: Sailors Run

Something weird about that site.

I keep getting almost as far as "Continue Reading" on Day 148, then waking up hours later in the dark.

It's so tedious it could be weaponised.
