Come to think of it, I have to spend more money even again...

My 60% also is still hank on and is sittin in the back of my ford truck (300k+ mi)....
So I do have to spend more money.

When you put on the 60% jib, (second to last sail), am i at the bow alone while it is bouncing up and down +/- 6 foot?

So my other question is still important and still stands...

If the second sail is not so safe to put up alone, I would prefer to scoot up there and have it on a code-zero.

Code-zero 60% = furl headsail in cockpit, scoot forward. Snap halyard, snap tack, snap sheets. scoot back.

Luff tape 60% jib = unfurl your 100% fully. Scoot forward. pull down and wrestle into hatch. Scoot back get 60%. Scoot forward. Snap tack, snap halyard, snap sheets. prefeed. scoot back. Hoist....maybe scoot forward again cause the prefeed is messed up.... ugh...


So even the 60% sail needs either to be luff tape, or anti-twist, code zero capable...
