Re: Shameless plug II. Yes. Everyone has one.

Caleb,
Looking at you photos, I find it interesting that you reef the jib before the main? Am I reading that correctly? If so, that is the opposite of what I do, which makes me wonder if that is one of the differences between higher vs lower aspect ratio keel.
The Tartan 27 is a really cool looking boat, one I was drawn to when I went boat shopping six years ago. But there was only one available here in South Texas and the owner was a "reluctant" seller, so no deal.
I experienced the new sail syndrome two years ago. Its a great feeling second only to a new bottom job. I think we are all racers at heart.
John
