Re: Production boats- justified bias?

It's a pretty interesting story, but the truth is it never felt "dangerous." It's not like the whole thing "blew up" or anything. First thing though, just to clarify, it wasn't a Leisurefurl. It...

Re: Production boats- justified bias?

Wow, step out for a few hours to put on the winter cover (which sucks!) and two pages of posts appear! All great stuff. Going to work tomorrow is going to be tough!

I see your point now. ...

Re: Production boats- justified bias?

I think you're mixing metaphors a little. Take Sabre and Tartan (of certain eras anyway) out of the equation, as they were built to a different price point and definitely have better fit and finish...

Re: Production boats- justified bias?

I sure do feel like this sentiment applies to me, only I lack the wisdom and judgment to make the New Year's resolution! :D

Re: Production boats- justified bias?

Re: Production boats- justified bias?

I have partial vertical battens. You still lose a fair bit of performance. Sail is smaller than those on my sisterships with conventional mainsails, and while you don't have a hollow or "negative"...

Re: Production boats- justified bias?

FWIW, I have had both and have used both offshore. Pluses and minuses to both. I have greater fear with the in-mast for the usual reason, which is what to do if it jams halfway out, but the reality...

Re: Production boats- justified bias?

Hard to argue with your point, but I think that's not necessarily addressing the question, or at least not the question as I understand it. Would you be concerned about cruising a modern "production...

Re: Why pay to sail in a rally?

Well, as the proprietor of an offshore rally from NY to Bermuda, albeit one that has been dormant for the past two seasons, I feel compelled to offer my own insight.

Hi all. It has been a LONG time since I've visited SN, and I hope everyone has been well!

For the past 2+ years I've been living with my first in-mast furling mainsail. There are plusses and minuses, to be sure. That said, I think some of the more vociferous criticism seems to come from...

These discussions always crack me up. Casual cruising sailors reject advances in technology like no other group. Eventually everyone comes around, but it's begrudgingly.
