Re: Traveler???

Thread drift: Those slice-of-pizza shaped boats look like they are nose diving when they are heeled.

Re: Traveler???

If you ever get a chance to see a TP52 at pace, it truely is a site to see. The power of those boats amazes me. We were racing against 2 of them for IRC east coasts and they are seriously no joke. They rate -80 to -90 on typical PHRF handicapping. Boat I was on rated -18. Passed us like we were dragging a skiier.

Re: Traveler???

When I'm solo sailing and actually under sail.. (not often on a river) I can sit behind the wheel with the long lines from my traveler and easily handle the main without messing with the mainsheet tension.

Whatzzit called??.... Rail Meat!

OK Jeff.....Got it! yes, very logical explanation..understood.As it stands now and for the next season at least. the boom end rig will stay as-is. Once I get a feel for it, I'll figger a way ta park a traveler on the transom coaminfg or possibly just fwd of that on the stern seating... It shouldn't interfere with the tiller, as it will be that much taller.
Coach top system would be at 60+% of boom length; fwd to stern. Would need to reinforce boom, make several attach point to spread the load; or a new, structurally proper boom...all $$$. It would take at least a 4 purchase block set (?), possibly a nother winch and would end up the same amt. of line as the std. main set-up. Oh well! That's why ask the experienced hands here!

Thanks
Paul

The TP52 is pure high-performance! The still shot doesn't really do it justice. If you want to see what the guys do, check out the video!

The driver is just driving

The tactician is calling tactics

The other five are bow, mast, and pit guys waiting for the next jibe or mark rounding, and currently hiking off the stern to keep the bow up.

Re: Traveler???

Is this a W27 with mid boom sheeting?

I agree with others that you should leave the sheet on the transom, and think about adding a traveler.
