Re: RF Main pros and cons

I apologize that I wrote this a few years ago for another purpose. I am posting it now since it still summarizes my basic beliefs about in-mast furling. Some things have changed since I wrote this...

Re: Never been sailing, want to sail the world.

Your question is a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string?" There really isn't one universally correct answer that would be the right answer for everyone. Individual sailors will have very...

Re: '74 Ranger 23 here, FL

I have quite a bit of experience with the Ranger 23. These are some of my favorite boats of this general size and this general period. These are boats which sail well in a broad range of wind speeds...

Re: Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society?

It looks like this has begun to get legs. The Group is now called CHESSS (Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing) and the membership has grown to the point that it looks like CHESSS will have at least one...

Re: Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society?

I have been on boats with spinnaker socks. When they work, in many ways they simplify the raise and drop. But they are much slower to deploy which is not good for single-handed racing. And when...

Re: Would anyone like a free wooden sloop?

I have owned wooden boats. It takes skill and dedication to put one into good shape, but once in good shape, they are not all that much harder than a glass boat to maintain. The big difference is...

Re: How do I start my sailing adventures.

I think it's great that you signed up for sailing at your college. I sailed on the U of Fla sailing team when I was in college. U of Fla offered dirt cheap (if not free) courses in sailing, and other...

Re: genoa sleeve

My boat came with a bunch of Kevlar racing jibs and genoas and i have continued to buy Kevlar headsails as I have replaced my inventory. I went with Kevlar since Kevlar makes for lighter weight sails...

Re: What's This On My Sail...?

When the boat has a fixed gooseneck and a mainsail made for the boat, the sail generally does not need a jackline. A properly designed mainsail is made so that the slugs at the reefs are spaced...

Re: Largest Trailerable Sailboat

Freestanding rigs mounted on tabernacles can be made to work reasonably well on small boats where the loads are manageable and the freeboard is proportionately large compared to the height of the...

Re: One Ship Stupid

I would like to suggest one small improvement to that. Normally one of the advantages of a properly tied cleat knot is that it does not slide against the bearing surface of the cleat and so is less...

Re: One Ship Stupid

Actually, I am saying that the lock on a properly designed jib sheet lead car should always face aft and away from the sail. This pushes the pin into the hole when the load gets largest, rather than...

Re: Largest Trailerable Sailboat

With all due respect Mr. Goarmy, you did start it. No one made fun of you. No one ridiculed you. No one 'Gave you ****'. No one asked you to 'Take ****'. There was nothing said that you needed to...

Re: Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society?

John

Thanks for the kind words on the picture.

I think single hand spinnaker flying comes down to tricks which work for each boat and finding ways to avoid having to be multiple places at...

Re: Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society?

John,

I do sail the Farr 11.6 single-handed pretty routinely. I originally bought the Farr hoping to do some single-handed racing with her. She is actually pretty easy to single hand and to sail...

Re: Need info on a boat!

That is a very beautiful old boat, but it would be a real handful and pretty close to the bottom of the list of boats that a beginner should buy as a starter.

I have owned boats like that one: ...

I don't think that "they'd be harder to handle and horrible on a beat" is an unfounded perception on your part. Based on my experience with the Freedom 28's, they don't point worth a darn, much...
