/\/\ +1, not a suitable replacement. Would also probably get pretty annoying to move around the deck efficiently in a rock climbing harness.

Thanks very much guys! I'm actually kind of glad it acts more like a jib or a genny. The boat is an E33 so I think it's a bit smaller, 3 man crew.

Generally speaking I do foredeck or I'm the...

No sprit
No pole
Rigged for "inside" jibes (this concept is still new for me)

Yup, boom vang is fairly standard. If you had a preventer you'd probably know it because you have to set it up every time you went downwind and then removed it if you decided to head up.

Sailing downwind is a lot harder than upwind as a beginner. I think you are confusing some of your terminology. Having a roller furler has little to do with having a spinnaker.

My advice for you...

Question Anyone have a Nikon d90 dslr on the boat?

Just wondering if anyone shoots with a nikon d90 on their boat? How has it been for you, has it held up to the abuse.

I am also looking at the d300, canon 50d.

Thanks!

Winds were enjoyable on the way out, a...
