Question about self tacking jib
I've thought about a self tacking jib but really cant afford the track etc.nor do I want to spend the money to set it up the way I've read about it. What is the reason that the jib boom has to be attached to a track at the rear instead of a single point in the middle of the deck. I do not race and sail on the Columbia river where we must make a lot of tacks.
