Sailed it about 3 or 4 times is all. Need to do something like lower the top lifelines to keep the headsail off them. Sailed in about 10-15 knots wind twice. Any help with this boat would be great.

Re: tanzer 25

Don't be crazy..... you never want lift a sail - and lowering the is not safe, they are there for a reason. Should you do so and have a problem you will not forgive yourself and your insurer will probably not cover you - any surveyor will also require they be returned to std to pass survey. I owned a T25 for 11 years, and wouldn't change a thing anbout the basic boat and layout. They are capable of extraordinary speeds on all points of sail, and can handle more wind and waves than most skippers. I regularly hit speeds well in excess of 10nt under spin or on a good reach. With a good crew and skipper they can easily beat boats as big as CS30 and C&C33.... boat for boat; I even beat boats much larger and faster than that when on the ball - taking an F3 across the line a number of times each yr. JuJube - T25 # 49 still holds many PHRF records

If you have not bought yet go for the fin for sure. It is a very moderate draft and should be no problem on Lake Simco. The shoal will just slow you down and make things a little squirley down wind at higher speeds.

Different 25 foot boat, but my top lifeline joins the bow rail at the same place the lower does, Gives. clearance for the headsail.
LOL what a load of horse droppings!

That is a horse head in the box. Not an alien!

Re: tanzer 25

No horse droppings here.... have your clubs PHRF rep look up the historical data on JUBUBE out of BHYC. You will see she sailed 153 below her rating for her best series.... that being a GHYRA double handed 5 races - and that was back when the boats rated 165. This is clear indisputable data on record with PHRF-LO. These boats are easy to sail, not so easy to sail fast.... however; when you get it right they are rockets! Best run was from CCIW tower in Burlington to the niagara mark - 1 hr 59 min planing under spin the entire way. JuJube was fully race equipped with UK tape drive racing sails, 3 spin's, faird keel and rudder, upgraded winches, backstay adjuster, adjustable mail traveler and upgrades sheet, and full racing bottom

Re: tanzer 25

Properly trimmed the headsail be well inside the lifelines upwind.... slightly off resting against.... on a beam or downwind it will be on the lifelines - a non issue and is so on most boats unless the sails are cut high or changes have been made to the safety equipment (lifelines) this I would never do and have been a survayor for over 25 yrs. Hey - enjoy your boat - one of the best 25's ever built!
