Re: Scary night sail
David, why not use a spring line?
I'm a big fan of springs but I find that they work best if put on a mid-ship cleat.
This boat does not have such a cleat.
I may try it from the bow and see what happens.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
