Re: Too Much Rig?! ;)

Saw the photos of you heeling over. Hard to move from side to side in a small space so you'll need to remain flexible.

Well done.

Re: Too Much Rig?! ;)

so everything works very well and she sails great, the leeboard set up is more than satisfactory but needs slight tweaking, i initially installed a doubled up bungie from the center line to the centerboard but even pulled very tight there was too much stretch and when the boat picked up speed the board would get sucked under the boat and was ineffective... today i sailed it with a rope instead of the bungie and that was a big help, i will install teak pads on the hull for the board to rest against that come out almost to the rubrail that the board rests against so that is cant be sucked under anymore...

here is a gem of a picture my friend took from the beach today with this phone... sums things up nicely
