Re: Pre sail checklist

bljones, I learned that shore power thing the hard way, too. $100 mistake.

I would amend your list slightly - when you take off the sail cover, also take off SOME of the sail ties. Leave enough so the sail doesn't get a mind of its own, but take off enough that once you're out and underway, you'll be more readily able to hoist the main. Also, be sure to put the sail ties in the same place every time. I'd suggest making a bag and attaching it to the mast.
