Not to be picky, but those scallops/bags near each jib hank are telling you that you need a LOT more jib halyard tension for your current wind strength.

Nice looking anchor locker though. Teak??? Though I'm not sure what happened to the roller for said anchor.....

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

LOL, noticed that right after I posted... Thinking man, I could have done better there..

Anchor locker is Marine ply that I curved and stained "teak" then Cetol'd..

Didn't have a roller when I bought the boat... I bought one, but didn't have a good spot up front to mount (nav lights, etc) so I'm thinking of some sort of chock off the forequater or something to keep from roughing up the rub rail...

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

I was chatting with a dock neighbour this weekend. I had passed him on the water while we were enjoying a particularly fun sail. In Georgian Bay, just West of Giant's Tomb Island.

He mentioned that he had a bit of video of our encounter.

Here it is:
