Having no engine was how I ended up with a lee shore in the first place ( see post #3 ) and depending on the strength of the wind , the old iron jib may not do much for you , other than delay the inevitable. Thats ok though . As I said before keep trying things until something works , there are just too many variables to give a step by step proceedure on this one . Wish there was an easy answer , but what fun would that be ? We wouldn't get to say " Haaa yet again we cheat death " and have great stories we can brag about . Even when we needed a change o undies at the time .

Its hard trying to nap with that bilge pump alarm going off all the time
