Re: How bad is my main sail?
I used to head over to the coast and there are some shops over there I'd give my business too, but blew an axle on the trailer coming back from my last trip and decided to put the trailer repair money into a slip for the next year or two. On my trips to Pamlico sound, the heavy winds (15-20 almost always) don't make sail shape or trim much of a priority and I can get hull speed just hacking around, but trying to learn a bit more dealing with light winds on the lake.
So looking to head to the coast after I get the trailer repaired. I know I can get 90% of the sail I want but I want to get someone to look at the whole rig and not just some pictures.
I see you are in Charlotte, I assume on a lake near by? Lake Norman maybe. And it sounds like you take the boat to the Pamlico Sound on occasion.
If you are planning, or could be convinced, to head to the Oriental NC vicinity I'd be happy to meet up, have a look and offer my thoughts FWIW. PM me if you'd like
