Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters
I see your point. The non-skid does show up a little when you blow up the pictures. It looks like you had a bright sunny day decreasing the apparent contrast in the pictures.
When you blow up the pictures that boat is full of interesting details. You may have explained this once but I am wondering a little about the dual backstays with what looks like dual hydraulic rams. It is an interesting detail that gets the backstays away from the rudder and helmsman. It is nice that you have some redundancy, but it also seems like unless there is a sheave at the top of the mast, one or the other would be working harder at any given time.
It's hard to tell what is happening with the jib sheet leads. Does the genoa sheet run to a lead block on the caprail and then to a turning block nearer to the cockpit? It looks like the staysail sheet lead is a track on the coachroof that is lead after to winch at the aft end of the house.
Anyway, its really exciting to see the first boat actually out sailing. Its also hard to believe that this thread started in June of 2015 and that the plug was well underway by then.
