Re: Few Albacore questions

Had the sails up again today and realized the pin does in fact fit into the grommet in the main.....I wasn't turning it enough to recess into the starboard side of the goose neck.

Sails say "racing" from a Chicago company....not like it matters, but ....


Question on sheets....I was desperate the other night to get the sails up, so I bought polyethylene rope in 3/16" flavor for the halyards....fits the sheaves well. Should I probably replace this for proper sailing rope before I take her out ( next summer likely)? Or will that work?

One more question......jib sheet, should it run outside , or inside of the stays?
Outside likes to snag kinda.....inside seems like it's not opening as it could...
