    Jib Windows with roller furler. Size?

    I have found that while sailing solo, visibility is pretty lousy through the orignal window on my 1996 14.2. I would like to look into adding more window area to the Jib (by a sail loft). I would like to know of others who have done this and what size/palacement. Also, are their any concerns...

    Near disaster

    Reef point position OK 2 years after talking about it, I think I will be getting reef points put in. I do not want to do it myself, so I will be taking it to a sail loft. I am trying to determine how high up to have the reef points placed. I have one drawing that places the reef points 2 foot...

    Roller Furler Sheet connection

    Race Visit Richard, Yes I was there asd a guest of Brian Anderson andwas out on the start boat (can't remember the official name for it). I believe that you were also on it, at the helm mostly, correct? I had a great time. As for the Jib sheets, coiling would probably work. Thanks for the...

    boom line

    I have a boom kicker and it works well. Mine does not look or FEEL too good. The fiberglass rods are fraying and if you rub against it you will know it for a few days! Mine is probably12 years old and the previous owner was not into covering the boat all summer! I have never seen or used a...

    Daysailing modifications, improvements, gadgets.

    I made a mast crutch from 2 pieces of thin 3/8 marine plywood and some 1 by 3 lumber. I wanted it to support a tarp for storage, able to travel, assist with raising the mast, easy to install and remove and very few loose parts. It seems to meet all of the above. To install it I slip it...

    How to get my Capri upside down?

    I have not done this before...but. I would say that if you can determine how to properly support the boat upside down then it would make the work of re-doing the hull 100% easier. I would not consider standing it up on the stern. The boat, without the mast or anything else except for the...
