Newbie rigging reefing line
Good Morning Sailnetters,
I'm off to the marina after work today.
The projects are 1) rig a reefing line 2) new gasket bead for thermostat, 3) check oil, 4) new hull #'s, 5) find electrical fault with knotmeter & depthsounder.
I know I'll never accomplish all of that. Basic question is on a 30' with a main with one reefing point, what diameter, length, and type of line should I purchase? I'd like to add a vang at some point, but can make do moving the traveler around for now.
Also, tips and tricks for removing long-attached hull #'s?
In an atomic 4, do I check the oil warm or cold? I've been told cold, but it seems so alien that I'd like some reassurance.
