    Considering making sails smaller

    Reefing Jim, I'd sure love to see some detailed photos of your reefing rig. I sail singlehandedly a lot and find myself capsizing far too often! Maybe reefing would be a great plan for me! Thanks, Marti

    Rub rail

    How did the replacement go? I'm wondering how your rub rail replacement went. My '80 Capri 14 Omega has two, possibly three places where I need to replace the rub rail. Initially I thought it could wait because it was just cosmetic. That idea changed after sailing yesterday. As we caught...

    how to fill the mast with foam

    Foam in the mast On my 2nd sail I nearly turtled my 1980 boat!!! (This could turn into one of THOSE stories for posterity, but I won't post the whole thing here.)
