Re: Trying another tack... Looking for the right boat near Vancouver, BC.
Were most CS33s set up for singlehanding with lines run aft as well?
You do not need the lines run aft to singlehand. I actually prefer the halyard and reefing lines on the mast. Using an autopilot or by heaving to, reefing is much easier. The friction on a single-line reefing system is much higher.
