Just had my first successful bareboat charter
two weekends ago (Lagoon 420 Laule'a
in SF). I learned quite a bit and came up with a number of questions.
The one for this thread is: How do you tell the traveler position when the traveler is on top of a hard bimini
? You can take a step out from the helm
and see the boom and the main sheet, giving you a pretty good idea. If you want to center the traveler, though, it really seems like you have to walk out to the mast
Has anyone tried any kind of indicator? I thought of a little metal finger that reached from the traveler over the back of the bimini
and down far enough to see. Laule'a
had a satellite antenna
in the way, but for other installations, this might be simple.
