Re: my boat dances on a ball

I agree with Jeff_H for the source of the problem.

I have a lot of tools in my toolbox now. Thank you everyone!

The riding sail seems like the most effective solution, but there are some practicality issues on my boat. my bimini is HUGE, and we have the boat in a charter fleet ( this could be outside the capabilities of a CCC ).

Taking down the JIB is WAY more than I would ask/or want a charterer to attempt. additionally my Furlex is UNDER the deck.

Cocking the boat, either by cleat or winch seems the easiest.

Apparently, in the right wind, it scares the people in boats around it, she dances pretty quick!

again, thanks for the tools!
