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

Some people actually like working on deck and don't mind getting wet. Leading all my lines to the cockpit? Geez, what a lot or work and money for so little gain. Everything so simple to do at the mast. Not sure about all the personal gear in the cockpit getting wet, but, for me if it's in the cockpit, it might get wet and ruined if not up to snuff. We get torrential Sumatra squalls and wind here in SE Asia, we get WET in the cockpit, down below it's dry and cosy and hot. Nice to get a free fresh water shower while we are SAILING! I'm just a grotty yachtie, sailing a small boat on a big ocean, a bit wet at times, rocking chair not in sight, and no way am i a professional in any way shape or form. A week or ten days wet? Geez you guys are must be getting old? We are wet all the time! Baby powder works wonder for those wet spots.
