Re: Mainsail and rigging questions

I'm not sure that I'd go aloft hanging on the blocks attached to the side of the mast, could rip off. Are they riveted?

Those hooks on the gooseneck look upside down. I don't see how a reef tack...

Re: What does a centerboard do?

No, that's not the correct conclusion. For a boat without a permanent keel, such as yours, it's critical to upwind performance. You will fall off and your effective course will be nowhere near what...

Re: What does a centerboard do?

As Tom says, try it. But this time try it with a control against which to measure the effect. Since there probably isn't another Petrel to sail against, use a GPS or smart phone to record your...

Re: Sailing Schools - certificated coures or 'a la carte'???

We took our first class last week with J World Sailing in San Diego. It was definitely a tailored class but would opt for a more formal structure to fill in the blanks.

New halyard: Sta-Set or Sta-Set X?

In 2005 when we bought the boat, I replaced the original halyards with StaSet-X. As reported above, it is a difficult line to splice. It's stiffness makes it weird to coil as well. I replaced the...

Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

I wish the model went out further, past 8/1 at 0800. Looks like the wind will be a little lighter and a little more southerly.

Thanks ... I have CBOFS bookmarked, but windfinder is on my phone...

Re: Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

Using Windfinder and picking Cove Point as a sort of mid-point, I see max of 7-11 E at 2300 on Friday night when you guys should be about there. That could be a great sail with a reacher. Temps are...

Re: Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

Our first Gov Cup in 08 was like this forecast. Virtually no wind at the start and then becalmed for 2 hours at 0200. If that happens for you guys, watch your GPS and the tide. We drifted backwards 2...

Re: Non-inflatable life vest and harness?

Good luck guys! I'll be jealous as as hell but monitoring from the other coast.

Good luck Bill. Feel free to abuse John since I can't do it myself. Make sure that you have him lube the relative...

Re: What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?

I checked "Other". I'm part owner/VP of a small software company. My boss/President is 200 miles away in another state and partly retired, so I mostly only answer to my customers and employees. The...

Re: Do I need new sails

Ditto.

35 Year old sails are very probably shot in the sense that the fabric is old and stitching is tired. Try the poke test described elsewhere. They are probably stretched out of shape but...

Re: What license should I pursue?

You have to be able to document the sea time. I believe that the definition of sea time means away from the dock (and documented as such) for at least 6 hours. I could be wrong on the #hours, but...

Re: How many people do I need to fly my a-sail

You can do it easily with 2 people. My wife and I did it without a sock on our 28 for 15 years. A sock is easier, but not at all mandatory. We set our aspin on the 38 with the two of us using a...
