Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.
Smack - spend a few bucks and get a good used chute from Bacon's or one of the others. Sailing under a brightly coloured chute is one of the very best parts of sailing and it doesn't even have to be expensive - a few $hundred will get you a very decent used sail. (Way less than your cell phone steering system I daresay.
Sailing WoW sucks - it is unnatural and just ASKING for a crash gybe with a moments inattention or getting caught off guard by a quartering sea. It's just about the slowest possible point of sail too - tacking downwind is way better.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
