Re: Mostly singlehanded...what lines should I run aft?

Zeehag - that's great. Your boat is set up with human ergonomics in mind and a comfortable motion from what you describe. Set my boat up to run from under the hard dodger but in a fashion that should any of the "new fangled" devices fail I could still do it the old fashion way. Find the more you bring aft the easier it is to shape your sails so the more likely you will do it. Rerigged my last boat so outhaul and kicking strap were brought aft ( had single hander's package to start). Found I was shaping the main for point of sail even when just day sailing around Buzzards Bay for an hour or two,
