station I find it very odd. It could be alright on an heavy cat that did not need frequent regulations
on the sails
but on a performance boat they would be frequent even more if the boat is used for racing
too as most gunboats are, but giving the intended use that does not make much sense.
Look at the first images
on this video with three guys on a big boat all together on a narrow space, trying to have a good view of the sails
from the inside one at the wheel
and two busy with regulations
don't look also very sensitive. Look at how the wheel-man is treating the wheel
. Not a two finger affair.
But overall is a nice sailing boat (I don't like the cabin) with some oddities.
There is something I do not understand. On the video there is a traveler block and the tester talks about losing the traveller but I do not see any traveler:
Unless the traveler is that small thing you see here but even if it has a small traveler how is it handled? There are no lines there.
