Re: Bump in the night

The problem is that your pennant lines sink. That little bit of weight is magnified by the obtuse angle of the line when the boat is farthest from the float. (Think small child at a pool, standing on the lap-lane floats. The small child exerts massive amounts of pull on the connection points.) Make it so the pennants float along a section of their length and you won't have the problem.

Ditto for the dinghy pennant.

Regards,
Brad
