Re: How Does Your Islander Sail?

That is interesting. I'm still pretty green and my 1975 30-2 isn't set up very conveniently for reefing, so I don't very often and experience pretty significant weather helm after about 12 knots, but frequently take it up to 18 with a 150 genoa and no reef in the main. With that, I don't see much consistently over about 6 knots except in uncommonly flat water and if I'm on a port tack, my knotmeter isn't in the water.

I'd love to see a photograph of a 30-2 or Bahama goose neck to see what the stock reefing hooks looked like. Mine doesn't have any.
