The moment the spinnaker is up its a great feeling! 😊I'm here, and have been reading and learning a lot. I've just purchased my Bristol 35.5, and am still learning about the various systems. I did my first winterization back in November, and hope to be launching in the next couple of months. I have neve flown a spinaker, and my boat comes with a large one, and a spinaker pole. Today, I've been watching Youtube videos on deploying a spinaker.
No doubt the new format has given us 'churn'. Its taken me time to get comfortable with it and theres still bugs that annoy me. So I, and the other Mods, feel for you and other members.Since the format changed, I've been spending a lot less time on sailnet - not sure why. I think I like the old format better.
As Bill pointed out, there is now a very active (and slightly more social) PSC facebook group, which I follow. But there is so much good information and so many knowledgable PSC owners here, that I'll keep posting here as well.
OBTW...welcome to you! Glad to see another PSC 31 owner aboard. At least our family is not a Faceplant, uh I mean Facebook crowd. Not even my Millennial son can stand the non-stop posts of folks on social media. I think you will find many helpful folks here and probably all off them don't care to see a picture of what someone may have had for breakfast or a selfie of someone with someone else we don't know!Just joined today...glad to hear this is not a facebook crowd.
