Sounds like a pretty good setup for a boat your size. I guess you'll be breaking out the polarfleece today.

So far, about 4:1 scope seems to be working the best. Tried more, but I couldn't stay put on it. Too nasty to use the dinghy to set the 2nd anchor, so I don't have as good an angle between the two as I'd like. And just to make it real fun, it's suppose to get down in the 30's. Oh joy !

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
