sealover is on a distinguished road
Got a wavefront tiller clutch for Christmas, bought a mainsail feeder off ebay, and plan to make a furler out of PVC (or conduit?) so I can get sail up and down (or in and out) quicker.

My biggest problem when singlehanding is feeding that stupid sail into the groove. I keep the main lashed down pretty tight so I don't get knocked off the hatch by a swinging boom but that makes it really hard to keep it pointed into the wind. Hope this helps and waiting for it to warm up!
