well im capt Yoho and im the son of a son of a sailor and i have been sailing for 22 years and im 38 now i like my ship clean and ship shape my friens call me Ahab but thats ok with me on my ship HA HA! I have two screvy dogs my son Jalen 16 and iIsabella 10. The oldest want's to go be in the coast gaurd and then buy a boat to live on. Isabella is just happy to go sailing. My wife Kristen is getting to understand the sailing thing and likes nice days. I on the other hand love 25+knots of wind and the rail in the water in waves. I also like it when it snows It will make you feel alive. It is even fun at light in those condition's but only with a good sailing friend would I go out like that. The crazyest place I ever sailed was through Disseption pass Wow We hit 11.3KNOTS it was a river with BIG wirlpools. I may never do that again and be fine all the same.

"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
