Ok. I'm out tonight so I'll check my halyard tension and I'll have a spare set if hands to keep a good tension on the line as I unfurl the sail.
I'm already a member of the M24 group on yahoo - I've had a few emails into that group to
address boat specific issues.
Loving the boat so far. Small enough to single hand (or manage with my kids) but big enough to feel like a real boat (as compared to my old dinghy racing days). PO left me with great sails which helps - but in modest winds I'm easily clearing 6kts into the wind. Haven't had a chance to run a windy beam reach to see how fast she will go.
