Re: cool cockpit BIMINI pic ideas please
jon I agree with you. however there are different sailors and likes for most any boat and thats the beauty of sailboats in the end I guess...everyone can do what they want having safety factored in
one of my all time favourite positions when sailing is exactly like you mentioned...on either side of the dodger aft of it, with one hand holding the frame and the other on some rigging or stanchion or even the end of the boom when into weather...I would duck and then get back "out" as soon as the wave or wind or whatever made me duck...plus I could always like you say keep a lookout and eye on the jib and wind direction...
thanks guys...well see what I end up fabricating...
I wish there were more islander 36s here...or owners I could speak to...the association is great but you have to pay a substantial membership and maybe Im missiing it but I dont see a forums or message board so to speak where you can talk live if you will
projects projects and more projects
