    Pointing Higher

    Here is a picture of a boat I help set up, Ed Jones. The main looks good. the jib could be trimmed a little bit. But look at how we were able to get rid of the leech return.

    Pointing Higher

    The reason for the loose mast is to open up the slot between the main and jib. I have the loosest rig at mission bay. This is also because our Quantum Jib has the largest girths (Class max). To get the rig tension correct you should be able to grab the shroud and turn your fist 1/4 turn. The...

    Jib Furling

    What it takes it removing the existing head stay from the mast. The wire in the sail becomes the new forestay. Yes you need a harken furller. I would buy the sail from Catalina yachts. any sail from a sailmaker will be set up for racing, i.e. no wire in the luff.

    The Catalina 14.2 Is it safe ???

    I think that with any 14 foot sail boat the possibility of capsizing is there. GO test sail it and then you will see how "tippy" it is. The boat was designed to be a family day racer.

    Water in Hull

    Another and less wet way to check for leaks is tape a foot powered air pump to the drain plug. Use duct tape and try and make air tight seal. Then hose down the outside of the boat. Take a sponge with dish soap and "sud up" the deack and hull. Then pump air into the hull slowly. Look for and...

    Explain Please!!!

    Richard Hit the nail on the head! Since I helped write the tuning guide I should know.

    Fractional Rig

    Most modern big boats now have fractional rigs. The Capri is a main driven boat. The jib helps balance out the helm up wind and adds sail area down wind. The disadvantage of a mast head jib is you have to make the main smaller. The turbulent flow off of the jib would back wind the main too much.

    Just noticed bubbles on the deck

    You can use a Dremal tool to grind out the blister. Then West Systems Epoxy. (105 epoxy and 205 hardner) And also mix in 404 High-Density Filler or 407 Low-Density Filler. Both are made by west systems. And it makes the epoxy easier to sand smooth
