Re: Singlehanding Pedestal Steering
Thanks first C&C.
That sort of paints the picture for me.
I do have a roller jib.
So, reefing from the cockpit? How is this accomplished?
On my rig, when the main is fully up, I've got a wrap or two of wire around the winch at the base of the mast and at least three wraps of line. Do you run your main halyard to a clam cleat or something above the companionway?
If not, how do you reef without climbing up on deck?
Sensitive boat... YEAH. It turns on a dime, under power or under sail. I've practiced a few standing turns, but it basically does one on its own if you just go hard over to starboard with bare steerage.
We learn by doing.
