Re: Random Photo Thread

I raced some E scows when I was a kid. Something like 300 sq ft main plus jib and a 500 sq ft spinnaker on a boat that displaces a thousand pounds. Once they heel they have a wetted surface with a hull to beam ratio that is very slim.

Fun but on inland lakes you can't go far without having to tack or jibe.

Re: Random Photo Thread

Variations on the masthead knot. Might come in handy some day, like if you need to jury rig. Will allow you to attach shrouds to any spar.
