Re: Not Getting the All-Chain Thing

That fabric laid overt the boom looks interesting. It'd be really quick to rig, so if that works at all it'd be pretty slick.

I'm curious why lifting the rudder would help. I would think the rudder would resist side-to-side motion.

Like I said, my boat swings all over at anchor. The stack pack acts like a quadruple reefed sail, so once it gets moving it really goes. It can be quite alarming when you're swimming off the back of the boat...
