Re: Old sailor, Newbie question....

I find my AP most helpful when single handing and at the mast raising, lowering, or reefing the main. It's also quite helpful for those quick ducks below to use the head or grabbing a beer.

This way google searches only CF forum and not the whole web! You'll get better results this way then with the CF search function.

All hail the Oracle!

Nice tip BlackAdder! I did not know that.... Clearly I shall have to consult the Oracle on how to trim up when consulting the Oracle for other advice on getting focused answers.

Re: Old sailor, Newbie question....

You're welcome.

I'm in the BVIs now and will be sailing over to Eustatia Island in the next few days. I'll tell Larry Page (co-founder of Google) that SV Gypsy Queen appreciates his handiwork!
