    harken boom sleeve/clew hook or clew strap

    I tried both of them and I'm using the strap becasue i think the strap just works fine and smooth.If it gets older you can change it in a low price.But the metal one is stronger but looks a bit risky about being stuck(i mean you cant lloose or pull it anymore).If some extraordinary situation...

    sea water versus the pond

    Is there any differences on the force of centerboard because of the lake water??I mean is it harder to keep the boat flat in lake water or does the horizontal force of the wind drags the boat to leeward?? sorry for my english :S

    You are right ,the financial books are archived for years in turkey too(altough sunsail is british they must keep them)But they are using the boats for just enjoying the guests in hotel so they don't need a sail number and I think they don't even cared about the sailnumber or know what it is.So...

    The boat's former owner is the sunsail clubs.It means tahtthe hull was used in an hotel.But someone has taken it out of it it can't be stolen because our club bought 10+ boats from them and all of them has stickers.When I checked the hull numbers they are very close to each other for example...
