Re: Production Boats and the Limits

With all due respect, if you actually studied the lines and the naval architecture of the historic vessels you cited, you would see that they did not have round bottoms as much as elliptical bottoms...

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

Re: Setting up a 24v solar charging system

You wouldn't slide the sheet (the guy really, once it's on the pole), in and out of snatch block after each jibe. I'd suggest that you permanently lead the guy/sheet through a block on a separate...
