Walt & Sailingdog, thank you also. Training wheels.....would that be a trimaran?

The Bucc's main sheet is through a fiddle block with a cleat so don't cleat it there either? I did look up backwinding the main and I understand that, thanks.

Seidman's book came with yesterday's post rider and I dove right into it.

I obviously still can't "talk the talk". I didn't mean 3 or 4 in up the sail vertically to reef. I meant 3 or 4 ties horizontal with the boom. From what I've learned about Buccs one reef at 30 inches should suffice. Any correction gladly accepted!

As it's been close to 30 years since I sailed, and that was a dinghy, I fully intend to start with the main reefed and no jib flying. I must be getting more conservative in my dottage.
