Eye sight is going in old age, here it looked like we had a firey red head, not another "bumd dlond" oops, "dumb blond" or some such thing...........
I need to include myself in the "bumd dlonb" category!

Just remember Twisty; When it comes to us old salts, you just take us with a grain of salt and tongue in cheek.
But welcome to this wacky world of sailing...

Excellent videos! Thanks
A coment on the backstay video. I have a masthead rig and always thought the reason for tighening up on the backstay when going to windward was to help reduce the sag on the forestay. No mention was made of that in the video. Also a general question about tension adjustment on the rig. The other day I was on the boat (a Tayana 37) here on the Cheaspeake Bay and the forestay was doing a hula dance of sorts. I think it hit the natural frequency. I can measure tension in all the 1x19 wires on the boat(using the folding rule method as outlined by Selden), but can not measure the forestay due to the Pro Furl furler on the forestay. If the mast does not bend is the tension in the backstay the same in the forestay accounting for geometry between the two wires? I'm not sure if in a mast head rig which I have if my mast bends much fore and aft..... if at all.
