This is a subject that's very dear to my heart.

Andre,

Thanks for the info - its sounds like it was a truly horrendous experience. It also sounds as if Jordan's assertions about wave behaviour might be too simplistic.

It was interesting to...

I thought about the suitability of the sheet winches but I'm not sure they would take the sorts of horizontal loads imposed by a series drogue.

The other advantage of chainplates (provided they...

Omatako,

I'm really interested in what happened to you. The esteemed Mr Jordan (as in series drogues) states categorically that yachts don't sustain damage from beaking waves falling onto them....

Oh er.... I think my Jeanneau sickness is mutating into Elan sickness. The Impression 434 looks absolutely rock sold. It has the design style of a Jeanneau but has double the tankage and a hugely...
