Re: Rafiki 37 owners out there?

Good question Rick. I'd be interested in any good solutions. It is a hazard of end-boom sheeting I suppose.

I did decrease the sheet diameter a couple of years ago, which has reduced the problem. I also use a preventer to maintain boom angle, which also reduces the problem. These days we usually just centre the main (sheet in) when the wind becomes so light and flaky that sheets can become tangled.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
