Hey Dawg,

How does the Storm Jib deploy? Removable inner forestay? Gale Sail? or does it require removing the furling sail?
I'm still concerned about the furler, if the stitching went once, it could again, elsewhere, If they only repair the tear.

No intent to challenge your abilities...or judgement .just bouncing thoughts.

Has there been any discussion of doing this trip inside..LIS, etc. or is it still the thought to go straight to Norfolk? Once you're out toward Hudson Canyon (70 miles offshore) you'll be out of VHF range for anything but local shipping. How does the Engine look, sound?

P.S. You're a better man than I am Charlie Brown...;-)
