swimnshoot is on a distinguished road
Thanks for the replies. Imagine, I grew up in Orange Park and now live just west of Mayport where the ICW and river meet. The currents and depths are much more hairy here.

We hope to shove off the dock in the next week and ease the sails out a bit. With 4 kids, my wife is insisting that I get the boat dialed in before taking the whole fam damily out. So, me being the agreeable sort, said "sure thing dear" This boat has an atomic-4 that purrs, harken roller furling, and mainsheet traveler. It came with a tight main and rolled head sail of unknown size or name ?
The roller furling drum is cracked at the top and I'm wondering if this deadlines it (sail snagging potential), otherwise, the rigging appears tight and sound.
Will surely post results, thanks again.

Kirk
