+1 on letting the sail do the work, by letting it back wind a little before you release. The sail will come across nicely on its own and you will maintain speed in doing so. Also +1 on making one...

Re: Marine head won't pump

Sounds to me as you have a clog and my guess would be in the vent line. Check right at the fitting as it comes out of the tank. That seems to clog quickly esp. if you have had a lot of use and maybe...

Re: Torn Main Can I Fix It?

1. OUCH!
2. Sail loft
3. new sail
How old is the sail? It can be fixed but it looks like it might be tired. Maybe get thru the season and then ask Santa for a new one.
