Beneteau 43 October Moon sailing close hauled in 15-20kt winds and 3-5ft seas. Speeds were in the 8.6kt through the water range. Running north from Solomons to St Michaels MD. Did this for close to 4 hrs. Much fun!

"Wayne, thanks for the update. You must have really put some pressure on that arm for it to flex that much. Glad to hear you got it apart and serviced. As an FYI next time use an appropriately sized piece of hardwood as the drift. Or lay the wood…"
