Hi. I'm returning to sailing after many years. My Dad and I had a homemade boat when I was about 10 years old. He taught me the basics on Hoover Reservoir near Westerville. My wife and I bought a Seaward Fox (17 ft) fractional sloop this past summer. The previous owner said it came with a jib. Turns out the jib is a genoa. I think it's a 130 - 150% based on the 3 times we sailed it. I'm not sure we are rigging it correctly. We're using the jib halyard and attaching the tack to a deck mount. The problem is with controlling the clew. It lays close to the deck which makes it hard to control, and the foot runs inside the lifelines. It seems like the genoa should be mounted higher on the mast and attaching the tack above the lifelines. Am I on the right track?
