Re: A few questions and intro

Thanks for the responses Faster and Wayne! I've only had a chance to quickly look through those different pages. I had seen the sailboat data sites but not the two you posted, Wayne. The last, Helms Sailboat, site looks really interesting, and helpful to see a larger range of Mr. Helms' other boats.

The previous owner moved the main traveler and sheet cleats to above the companion way hatch on our boat. It's really hard to get to and trim often or smoothly. I see why he did that though, I don't really want it in front of the companion way either. Has anyone seen any other set-ups that worked well and allowed for the skipper to trim the main easily?

We raced on our second day out. ;-) The race committee couldn't find a PHRF for the boat so thought I would do some digging. We're definitely going to be doing more racing.

I'm so happy to get a few responses on here. It looks like the Yahoo group is dead and I was worried this space may be more of the same.

Thanks again.
