sailingdog I think we hit a sore spot... CD appears to be unhappy with us... Truth hurts, don't it...

Idiens I use a length of wipping twine for the same purpose, and its re-usable (what a cheap skate).

JohnRPollard You know, I used to wonder, when CD would say that he doesn't need a spinnaker, because his boat goes downwind just fine under "main and genny". Now so many things are becoming clear to me....

JohnRPollard TB,

That is one sweet looking Catalina sail!!!

Which loft did that come out of, and what model?
