Where do you keep it all?I think you would find a 110 or a 125 would be a good blend with the 150 and 95. I have a 155 carbon, a 140 cruise delivery laminate, a 130 3ox nylon drifter for light wind days, ie under 6 knots, a 110 in a dac/mylar mix, and a storm jib, about 35 of the for triangle. I have been toying with getting something in the 80-90 range when the 110 is too much, and the SJ is too small. For me that is 25-35 or so.
Yup, I put tension in the main halyard, backstay, clue outhaul. I have not rigged a cunningham yet but its on the list. I need to add a deck plate under the mast first. I have not tried the to open the slot yet, thanks for that tip.If you're getting that much backwind in that little air, it sounds like the main needs flattening. Is your backstay good and tight? Vang on at all? Outhaul and cunningham? Sheet socked 'way in? You have probably already done all these things. Next step might be to try opening up the slot by barberhauling the jib OUTBOARD, perhaps with a snatch block on the rail. This will affect your pointing ability (though perhaps not really that much) but could increase speed markedly. Otherwise, it could be that your main is simply too blown out and baggy, and you need to give Omar the tentmaker a call about a getting yourself a new (flatter) main.
