As for the tank lid, I found the thread on that with the instructions and am planning to make a new one from 1/2 inch PVC. Thanks! As for the upwind performance, yes, the main and genny are definitely a bit tired; however, the 100% Yankee and staysail look like they've never been used and I didn't do much better with that combo. I suspect the rigging needs adjusting--something I will get professional help with, since I have no experience there. Thanks, all, for your input.

You need the main and genny to point...yankee and staysail wont do it.

psc 31 pointing

Paul,

I have an 88 PSC 31 too and it points very well. I have older sails and the scheel keel which most say does not point as high as a standard keel. I think you are right to start with the rig tune.

I highly suggest the Brion Toss web site to learn to do the tune yourself even if you are most comfortable with watching the expert do the first one.
