Re: Lazy sheet in your lap as rail meat?

Also what if your jib gets backwinded (oops) and the trimmer takes it in on the new side? This just isn't adding up.

Re: Lazy sheet in your lap as rail meat?

Clucas I maintain that:

Bottom line in my mind: If you are rail meat, do not touch, sit on, hold, pet, or put in your lap, any sheet. Keep it free at all times.

Re: Lazy sheet in your lap as rail meat?

I lost you for a second. The lazy sheet wouldn't be lifting off the deck under any load AFAIK in any of these scenarios. Yes it would be whipping but not ejecting people as I understand it.

Lazy sheet in your lap as rail meat?

Ok got on a new boat that's 50' and a rotating cast of merry crew and newbies most every time. Mostly I'm working as a grinder and helping out in the pit. Fun stuff

I can't help other than to say I have a Tartan 30 and it is a fast, dependable tank. I think this results in a shade less livability, but you'll have to check both boats for your comfort level.

How does a supermaxi sail?

Hey Gang,

Just looking at this boat makes my pulse quicken. How do you sail such a beast? It seems to have about 3x the mast height that I do on my sloop. What would you do if you got overpowered?...

Sloop rigged with loose-footed main (no boom)?

Just idly thinking... what would be the disadvantage of having no boom on say, a 30' sloop?

There'd be no danger of bonking heads during coming about, and I suppose you could rig a shackle to pull...

Hi I am helping a very good friend that I'm sharing slip fees with. I don't have any equity in the boat, just full access to it.

I think it works if there is trust and fairness involved.

Taking him safely solo around the world wasn't good enough? My theory is he knew he was old and tired, so he shoved off to chose his resting place. :-)
