If Sailnet is dead, why is this here?

I own 2 web sites and they are both pre-paid for 2 years.

That''s probably why this site is still up.

When the time runs out this site will not come back up.

Think of coins dropped in a...

Chris Craft Capri 30

George,

Currently I have a Hobie16’, but used to own a 35’ custom steel sailboat, based on a Charles Whitholtz design.

Downhaul question???

Gwp, I have a 16’ Hobie cat and was sailing it 2 weeks ago on a very windy day.

Crazy?

roller furling on the fore sail(s), and a fully battened main attached to a track system will allow for easy sail handling.
