Hi Mary . . . .
What propted you to be my friend . . . . ?
I'm in Italy now preping a 47' cutter to go to Malta, Tunisia, Sicily, Sardinia, the Balearic Islands, coastal Spain and Gibraltar . . . . . Then perhaps the Canaries . . and over to the Carribearn . . . .
Thanks Mary and welcome! Newport is one of the best Nautical places to visit! I was there not too long ago for a daytrip from the Boston area. I was supposed to take an evening sail, but it was cancelled due to the hurricane (which hardly amounted to anything, really). You have that wonderful boat show in a few weeks, been there several times :)
I think I can remember some time back a member of this group suggested rollers sheaves on the traveller car provided a significant improvement in the ease of operation.Has anyone carried out this modification and if so what hardware was used?Thanks,BilgolabandsSee More
