Re: Can someone explain roach to me?
I would suggest that where practical, maximizing roach may actually make more sense on most cruising boats than race boats.
I agree wholeheartedly, but I must confess - I'm a bit surprised to hear a guy as 'racy' as you are, admit to that... (grin)
The resultant loss of roach area is one of the biggest downsides of in-mast furling on a cruising boat, for me...
