Thanks for the encouragment. I was frustrated to the max yesterday. Cured somewhat by an evening sail.
I have a buffer and will polish my fids and try the baby powder. If I still am having problems I will post some photos.
meantime i think I will go for another sail. too nice a day.
Polishing my fid...that doesn't sound quite right, does it? as in yeah, my wife caught me polishing my fid last night....
