Re: S/V East Coast Lady make her 1st trip in 4 years under sail

I will go to all rope soon. I just tried last month and screwed that up. I got the pilot line stuck between the sheev and the mast. It was a nightmare. Luckly for me a nice guy went up "with me cranking him" and pulled it out. it took like 3 hours to do it. I am afraid to try it again. but I must. I have the new double yacht braid 3/8 for the job. The day I tried it was windy and I did not keep tention on the line and the wind took it over. I will do it on a calm day. You can read abought it here. S/V East Coast Lady: Climbing the Mast

congrats on your first outing!

Halyard must never be let loose. when ever I take it off the main I make sure it's secure at both ends, with some kind of tension. it's amazing how quick a line will run through to the end when you least expect it.. like "oh.. I just let it dangle while I flake the main"... ZIP! 40 + feet in the air she goes!

Topping lift or the line that holds the boom up should always be released or slack. Some boats with Boom struts like yours has use a simple cable and hook, on the back-stay for "parking" the boom.

That is helpful.
I just need to find a tack pin that will work with my C&C 30 MK1
