In the open sea A current will allow your boat to keep the angle set. On S.F Bay it will move the boat all over. The current is eddying, and swirling like mad. It depends where you are on the bay.

Until you get a smaller headsail on the boat. I would just duck behind Angel, Alcatraz, the city front, T.I. or Sausalito. In the summer time that 150 is good for early morning, or late evening. During the day you need something much smaller that will reef, and hold it's shape. For 17 years I was at the end of the slot in Emery Cove, so I have some experience with what the bay offers.

Since you were succesful with your pprevious boat. I would imagine your problem is not being able to balance the boat. You could always roll the headsail up to a smaller %. Even it has no shape just to Hove to.

Did yyou get a chance to go out, and sail with the Polynesian canoes when they were on the bay?......i2f
