TrueBlue,

Nice photos. I actually prefer a cloudy day for sailing -- even if that incudes rain. But I'm sure I'd like it even more with that pilothouse! I like the "sunroof" too. Too bad the pilothouse isn't gimballed, eh?

One thing I noticed in some of the photos, and previously in your "TB solo sailing" video is that the traveller for the mainsail seems to be set well to windward, so much so that the boom appears to have crossed over the centerline of the boat to the windward side. Is this just a perspective illusion? Or is this something you do only when motorsailing? Just curious...
