About Me:
Have been sailing eight years, studied Basic Keelboat at J World, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Basic Cruising a J World, Annapolis, Md.
Now own an Irwin 10/4 which is safely on the hard in my back yard, safely tarped and lightly covered with snow. This summer was pretty well spent on engine overhaul, larger fuel tank, wireing, paint and getting ready for 2011. May have to escape Iowa for Mexico this winter, but hope to spend next winter in my boat on the Gulf coast.
Current location:
Montrose, Iowa
Destinations visited:
Sailed from Chestertown ,Md to Montrose, Ia via Chesapeake Bay, C&D Canal to Delaware Bay, to Cape May, NJ to New York Harbor' Hudson River to Erie Canal to Buffalo,NY, Lake Erie to Detroit River, to Lake St Clair, St Clair River to Lake Huron, to Lake Michigan, to Calumet Harbor , Illinois River to Grafton, Il, Missippi River to Montrose, Iowa.
Looking to:
Complete the loop down river to Florida Keys and then back to starting point at Worton Creek in Md. , 2011/12.

"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…"

"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"
