I suspect that the boat may have the trysail because the first owner did at least one Newport-Bermuda race and also sailed to the Med (back in the days when cruiser-racer meant you could actually do both). I could tie off the boom - would have to see how best to run the sheets to the aft quarters. Can't do that until we are back in Oz in another 5 weeks or so.
Do you run your sheets to turning blocks and then to the primary winches? I don't have convenient eyes for doing that I think.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
