No, its a jib sheet.

That P51 was low and close, but not that close,,,LOL.
Columbia Airport is only a half mile or so away and Melones is a favorite low fly zone. We have alot of floatplane traffic too, there's a school a few miles North in San Andreas.
Here is the real(not photoshopped) pic.

MAKE SURE THE FORESAIL FURLING LINE IS LOCKED IN THE JAM CLEAT!!!!!!


A furling line should not be in a Jam Cleat, but a line clutch or a regular cleat. A jam cleat, like a cam cleat, is really for lines that are being adjusted constantly IMHO.. and not for something as important as a furling line.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

SD, yeah, I'll be ordering some cam cleats soon. One of the sheet cleats doesn't always lock, so I'll replace all of them and swap out the jams too. I have jams on the backstay tensioner too, and yup, they slip too. There's alot of stuff I need to upgrade, but it's a nickel and dime operation, so I'll have to get by a peice at a time.

SS, Macks would be a kick from a sailboat, I envy you salt water guys.

She likes the boat more every time she goes out with me, and this time ws worth a dozen. We had some good wind for a change, not all the time, but enough to keep us on our toes and two days of excellent "beginers" wind.
We had a P-51 flyby on Saturday, man what a cool airplane, and THAT SOUND.......
#1 the plane
#2 what it looked like to me,, LOL
#3 Gooses new look, I shed my Winter coat, no more ZZ until Fall

You need to chill Goose. You look a bit stressed in that pic, like the weight of the world is upon your shoulders.

Shite, the only time I'll look that laid back I'll probably be dead.
