hope the trip is a good one and that any unknowns are not evile and murderous.
wow puerto rico from your side of pond.
if you get a trip to west coastmexico, please stop by. i will be repairing my issues for a while i am afraid.
The problem with the jib is its limited to the width of the saloon.. so the leech starts flapping once you get 130 aft of the beam.. its around 1.5 metres from the end of the track to where your jibsheets would normally go on each side... as for blocks on the padeyes right aft.. its a much longer line to a small fractional high cut jib as opposed to a nice size genoa.. about 9metres+ from the furler.. it'd work but not that well.
Zig Zag, Zig Zag Phil..... whis you sweet waves to minimize flapping.....
My pleasure Ann..
I'm a bit gutted he's pulled out of sailing across as Monday the 6th onward is looking perfect to start a fast run down to the Canaries and as the Trades seem to be holding to N of E from there one could likely get by without needing a spinnaker for the crossing..
It was a dark and stormy night and the captain of the ship said.. "Hey Jim, spin us a yarn." and the yarn began like this.. "It was a dark and stormy night.."
