Legacy / Re: Jib - Advice Sought
« Last post by Neil D on Today at 05:00:27 PM »
Thanks for all responses. The next two things I am going to take a closer look at are

1) remove the black ties and use an aluminum carabiner (much cheaper than sail hardware) to quick-connect the tack of the jib to the bail of the anchor roller instead of tying. I think I can pick up at least an inch of slack that way.

2) It looks like there is too much distance from the shackle on the jib halyard to the head of the jib. I need to take a closer look at the hardware and see if some of the linkage can be minimized.

I don't think the mast rake is off; it was adjusted optimal for me prior to my picking up the boat from the dealer.

Stay tuned...film at eleven

Welcome Edward!  The TennTom trip is a good plan because as long as you stay below the Mason Dixon line you are relatively safe from Bob's "Family".  And should you do that, you should keep me up to date on your itinerary, I'll be glad to buy you a beer as you pass through Bay Springs Lake.  As you know you will need such a treat after traveling down divide cut (boring).  I keep my 23 at Bay Springs Marina which is just north of the Jamie Whitten lock and dam.  You might add a day to sail the lake, it is a beautiful, undeveloped lake, although somewhat small compared to Kentucky Lake.

Have considered towing up to Kentucky Lake a few times but have never put the trip together.  Also thought about just renting a cabin at Lighthouse Landing and renting a Colgate there for my sailing fix.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes. I'm amazed at all the interest in kentucky lake. I love this area and have been sailing here now for five years, met a few friends along the way and even a few enimies, rude fishermen.
In light of the generous offer to wave my very respnablr membership fees I'd like to introduce myself, my name is Edward Hubbard i fell in love with sailing about 5 years ago. I'm  37 and I've owned a mac 21, hunter 25, Yflyer, and now my most favorite boat ever the com-pac 16 which is the perfect boat for kentucky lake. Last fall i sailed my 25 down the tenn tom to Perdido bay and into the gulf. I plan to take my 16 on the same trip this fall. Thanks again.
