Re: Help what sail to raise 1st?

Ok, thank you, so far the main first seems to me to be the (Main Idea) True the FJ is so little it may not matter. I am starting to see why the insructor I had did the main first in his boat. It was not untill going over the books that I started to think on what order to use. Allen Brown's book said start aft you could have trouble if you start near the bow but did not say what kind of problem or why. Now I get it your main could jam and give you a hard time you will be out of the cockpit when you are doing this splashing around in the waves. I am looking at a yawl even more sails. This yawl is not going any place. It will be years before I act on yawl or other boat Decison. Right now the habits I learn in small boats will be the ones I will use in bigger boats or if I run into trouble I do what I have done in the past most of the time. If I am not thinking this out right or need to add more please do. Thanks for all the replys sailnet is a good tool to have! LOU
