Franc, we were at the boat tonight as they just launched her this afternoon. We couldn't wait to see her in the water again. I took s couple of pictures of our boom for you. It appears as though your's differs from ours. The spot where the furling line turns back towards the forward part of the boom has the notch cut out where on your's it does not. Looks like somebody goofed on your's.

Franc, we're heading over to do some work on ours. We expect to be launched some time next week. I wrote a note to check on our furler line. Although we've not sailed her much I can still check for potential issues. I'll let you know what I find.

For those of you with Zspars masts and roller furling mains:

See below photo for the chafing problem we are having. It seems that the mainsail outhaul line chafes inside the boom. Do you have the same problem or does it look like your outhaul is mounted different?

I would appreciate your thoughts.

Varnish vs Teak Oil in Alaska (looking for advice)

Hey Gang,   I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now. Maybe this is just part of the regular upkeep on any boat…See More
