Re: Broken Forestay Connecting Link

I stand corrected :)
I was assuming that the Match boats came w/o roller furler and that this was an after market mod.

Sometimes builders deviate from the designers plans also..

Re: Drilling out bungs

Use a under sized drill bit and drill out wood in the middle, make sure you are going outside the edge of the bung.

Use an awl to pick out the rest.

Re: nmea 2000 etc

Thinking low cost I would say

1. Tiller Pilot (TP22)
Does not need any integration at all

2. Depth Sounder
3. Knot Meter
Have their own displays in cockpit, no need for integration.

It's better to mark the turnbuckles before they take any slack off the rig.

Re: Genny sleeve

I have a similar sleeve since we have roller furling and more than one sail without built in sun cover it made sense. It will protect the sail better than a sun screen against polluted air.
