Super Awesome Boat Pictures!!

Does anyone else have that one great picture taken of their boat that they just cant show off enough, Maybe its just me but heres mine

Ohh p,s teh boat is a 1980 Edel 665 if anyones wondering, and this summer was the first time the spinnakers been up in 21 years- lol and of course hung from the jib halyard... risky..

The picture is completely untouched/edited, Just a great camera and a great day.. Note the oxidation on the hull from 30 some years of sitting around in the sun

jimgo and jameso like this.

Spinnakers are like that. You have to sneak up on them and try using them in light winds to start with.
Yes, you should be using a spinnaker halyard for the spinnaker instead of a jib halyard. There could just be a block attached to the top of the mast for the spin halyard and it might need looking at after 21 years.
Nice pics and nice boat though.
