mainsail halyard is a bit loose, or main is stretched, and you need to install a cunningham........
Nice day for a sail. When I went across Lk Washington on the floating bridges today, flat as a perverbial pancake, and Puget sound was pretty flat and little, some but very little wind when I walked Mr Winston and cleaned up the boat getting ready for the race sunday.
I need a new main. Halyard is cranked - and I even have a cunningham (you can see the cringle about 6" above the boom), and IT'S cranked! She's just seriously bagged out and under a lot of pressure. I'll drop the dime on new sails at some point. I'm still saving for a coastal boat.
The good news is that the repaired bulkhead is as strong as ever.
Hope your wind is rockin' on Sunday. Bring home a pickle dish will ya?
