oh and add cockpit scuppers and create a thick weatherboard that swings in front of the companionway to create a sturdier closing for heavy weather to prevent a breaking wave from destoying the weatherboards and floodiing the cabin

oh yes i do have a 90 percent jib in very good condition actually there all hanked on something i had to learn with this boat being used to crewing on modern boats i was like what is this contraption took about 2 minutes on the water to figure it out. i was just concerned about atlantic storms u know and heaving to might be overpowered with a 90 percent jib. oh i never knew there were screw ins i shoud check the store for that hmmm for fuel storage i may be able to build a fuel locker in the aft cockpit locker it already has a vent built right in so sounds like a good place and it could fit around 100 or 200 us galons in that space its pretty large just need to build some sort of encapsulation for ground taxckle i have 1000 feet of three eights chain and about 2000 feet nylon and i have a 45 pound plow a 35 pound bruce and a 25 pound of one of thiose type everyone has the folding ones that are virtually useless. im definitely planning on having fun with sheet to tiller im guessing shock cord means bungee cord i wowonder if the book is available online anywhere hmm... oh and the rudder check sounds really straightforward illl just fdo that before launch next year, and that actually sounds ingenious how were they fastened to the window so they wouldnt fall off, and would the breaking strength of marine ply really protect tempered glass. oh wow for the jacklines the padeyes ssound like a good idea can u give me a better idea of how that would work ive akways used a climbing harness is that sufficient for sailing for me its always been like a just in case thing that i bring but am i being foolish using this. oh do they i figured they just checke for rotten core and keel bolts and this boat has neither keel bolts nor coring but i may get a survey i dont have insurance i figured on a 13 000 dollar boat do i really need it and foir the drogue thanks, ill check them out, also for storm jibs could i use a jib from my dhingy because its small or would it be too lightweight pf construction to do the job

100 feet of chain sorry finger was overzealous and well theres no tank and that may wheigh a bit much but it look like a cavernous space so i just did a rough guess probably much less than 100 gallons but its big although aft isnt the greatest place for a tank u know since it makes the boat rather unbalanced and makes it likely to be pooped and oh surgical tubing i heard of that i watched the videos from a guy circumnavigating in a vega i just never knew why but that makes sense but yes for gas i suppose aft is a bad idea i just figured its ventilated but on second thought id like a bouyant stern....hmmmmmm maybe more like 10 gallons there and maybe move my water storage to below thge v berth and my gas storage to in the old engine compartment but make it ventilated somehow its really a no good solution answer what about sailing off the coast of nova scotia would i need as much gas then although im assuming id get a nasty breeze from the labrodor sea

i checked that site u showed me for drogues is this stuff good for making jacklines Webbing Polyester 2" Black Seat Belt 5500# or would this here be sufficient Webbing Tubular Polyester 1" 2700# ive heard 6000 as the figure for breaking strength is that right or is 3000 more like a realistic necessarry breaking strength i mean obviously more is better but more also means ore likely to trip me also where can i find a tether ive never actually bought one
