I believe you have found the answer to my question about placing the scanner, Ram
(I like your boat Ram BTW. I've skippered an Athena 38 quite a few times.
She feels substantial and very stable.
I topped 21 knots on one occasion delivering a new one from France.
It was not intended. A squall hit us out of nowhere. Scarry!
With a suitable wave we could have pitch-poled.)
I have a babystay so the headsail is not going to foul but I may add a simple hoop or two to take care of it.
But I do have my whisker pole to think about Raven
I may have to put a stopper on the track so the carriage cannot go up to the radar
You guys are great! You think of everything, don't you...! I like.
And I thank you.
I'll have a look in the daylight tomorrow to see how it can be done.
I have an idea but will wait till it is complete before I say anything. I've been known to be too enthusiastic at times.
Also I need to reread all these articles. I think it said somewhere that a wet headsail would block the view.
In this case the answer is to furl the genoa
when there is a lot of spray around???
