Re: Rafiki 37 owners out there?

Hey Rick,

When I bought the boat it had a setup where the sheet travels along the bottom of the boom to the mast, then down to a pulley and back to the the cockpit. It's a healthy length of rope, but it has been very easy to use--especially in the bay were the winds become fierce in the afternoons. I don't have rope laying anywhere but next to the starboard winch where the cabin meets the cockpit. Once I get a dodger It'll be nice being able to control the main from underneath. I don't have any pics, but would be happy to take some this weekend and post, or send. I'm in Alameda Marina--straight off the Svendsen's dock with the boat lift. Tony
