Re: Wind indicator NOT for mast top

Well you can spell it better than me that's for sure. I went to Highschool up there. My parents live in Merideth. I sail the lake with my Dad on a 16' Hobie One. It's a pain to sail the lake, but better than not sailing I guess. I'm a promoter of getting back to the organics of the sailing experience. Not being a diget midget. Simplifying it. Do we need a dangling arrow to show us our degree of list. I'll admit when I deliver a boat that has a wind chiken on the mast, I use it. I get a neck cramp to. I had one fall off on a recent delivery and sighed relief when it was gone. I tied some nylon strapping to my Dad's shrouds. He said they fell off and, all though they helped in the begining, he did'nt need them anymore. When people ask me to teach them to sail, I teach them to let the boat teach them how to sail. She'll let them know when they are doing ot right.
