You nailed it Sailingdog. Since we don't keep her in a slip, set up and take down is an issue. Any item that can be left in a ready state is one less thing to fuss with. I don't mind the fussing, but sometimes my crew gets restless - don't want to provoke a mutiny! I love messing with rigging and ropes and such, but the kids have the "can we go yet?" approach. They'll get it eventually and understand that the journey is the destination.

Flat,

You are going to REALLY enjoy having new sails. It will be a completely different boat in a wonderful way. You will get off your ear, and the boat will sail in a whole lot less breeze .....i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

Thanks i2f, I'll show your post to my first mate, she is still a little sticker shocked. I upsized to a 130 genny too, we only ran a standard jib previously, so this will be an added benefit. Here in the desert the wind is often light and while it makes for good lunch while under way sailing, it can also put one to sleep. I suspect if nothing else, the aforementioned crunching sound will help with that! We'll have to keep 'em tight.
