Joel, I figured out a way to cruise around the world and get paid for it. I have to tell you that professional crew work their butts off.....the owners get to have the fun while you are working. It wasnt all bad or I wouldnt have done it for 8 years. I have some great stories for when I am on the porch in my rocking chair!

Joel, Thanks for adding me as a friend. Do you get much of a chance to cruise or are you working too hard?

"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"

"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…"
