Howzit Cal sailors,
Yes, humpback migration is in full swing this time of year. All types big and small moving along Northshore, O'ahu. I'm assuming they're headed to Lahaina, Maui to relax and play in the calm waters. It's always an exciting sight to see! Our Cal27 does not have a topping lift(although we'd like one)but does have about an 18" length of travel for the boom gooseneck/downhaul. we ran the boom up high on the track and the reefing points ran smooth after adjusting the outhaul some. We rarely reef, but did it in the slip and made some adjustments in the turning basin. Went well! Whale season is another 6 weeks or so. Always room for a couple more.
ps: this is the main reefed down on a summer day with big jib up. Notice how high the gooseneck is up...
