Yep... 8:1 is just wrong....Awesome.. thanks... Do you trim your traveler by hand or with a winch?



The cunningham, outhaul and main halyard should probably be reversed or lines will cross at the mast base.

Yeah! You're totally right... Switched...Thanks.



The mainsheet will be a pain. It should run farther aft where you can reach it from the helm.

Well.. if I had to design the boat I'd probably move the traveler to the cockpit. That's out though. I'll need to come up with something creative to keep it accessible at least from the cockpit....

You guys are great...
