XSrcing: HA! That's great. I'm glad my redneck rant was effective.
I plan to research controlling the mainsheet some more.... and learn a few knots before this weekend. The slip expires so we'll be bringing the SJ23 back home Saturday after another outing. I've got my eye on Lake Jocassee and maybe Keowee which are 30 and 25 miles closer to home and both off the interstate which my old Dodge should appreciate. I can't say at the moment how many times we'll sail over the winter but it'd be an opportune time to recover the 35 year old upholstery, rewire the solar charger and either install a chart plotter or fix the knotmeter and depth finder. I'm told the original knotmeters never worked that well anyway.
