geezus!!!! what a year to buy a boat...twizzled. I knew i bought extra lines and thick ones too! yikes
keep watching--the fun is just starting to unfold.....LOL
Beginning to look like maybe Ana isn't gonna amount to much, and Bill is now predicted to sort of head up the east coast, and maybe stay far enough off shore to not do any major damage. So, lets keep our fingers crossed, pray to all the Sea Gods, and hope. Of course thats all in the future. Next week will tell the tale.
my knees are wearing out praying to sea gods--lets see what happens--i need my infusion of salt water for strength and fortitude and fishies for dinner LOL

yes--is one of my favorites--i am surprised i didnt put it in here also!!! do we have to have a funeral for a dead storm or does it just fizzle off into nothing, or does it pull a katrina and come back to life unexpectedly just as we pulll into the anchorge in.......(somewhere just underneath her)......still watching--i donot trust dead storms in caribean--can still creep up on ye while ye're not watching and do mayhem.....come onn, sea gods---we wanna sail more !!!!!!!!

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"It is only when sailing close-hauled. Unfortunately, this is the only course, where performance really matters. I‘m going to perform two tests: - Sailing with genoa only (track cars on the same position). In this case any (unequal) trim…"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
