Re: S/V East Coast Lady make her 1st trip in 4 years under sail

I will go to all rope soon. I just tried last month and screwed that up. I got the pilot line stuck between the sheev and the mast. It was a nightmare. Luckly for me a nice guy went up "with me cranking him" and pulled it out. it took like 3 hours to do it. I am afraid to try it again. but I must. I have the new double yacht braid 3/8 for the job. The day I tried it was windy and I did not keep tention on the line and the wind took it over. I will do it on a calm day. You can read abought it here. S/V East Coast Lady: Climbing the Mast
