Hi Greg. I bought my 2010 Legacy last year from a guy in Seattle.  When he purchased the boat he added every possible option Com-Pac had to offer. This boat is loaded( Bimini,compass,cushions, electrical,). I am very proud of  this boat. I was only able to take it out twice last year as I bought it  early fall and live in Denver. I am going to make  a few changes this year. I just ordered the Unifoil  kick up rudder assembly from Rudder Craft. This I supposed to really improve the upwind performance of the boat and also make it easier to trailer.  I would also like to eventually get a Torqeedo electric outboard motor. I currently have a 3.5 hp Mercury but I am having some problems with it.  I went  last week for my first sail of  year. This is the first time I actually launched the boat by myself . I have always had a slip in the past and my kiddo always helped me with rigging and launching the boat. This is when I had a Precision 21. I love having a smaller boat that I can take to different places. Last week was quite the experience though. It was pretty windy and the sail slugs were getting stuck as I was raising the mainsail. Also my motor failed me at the worst possible time, right as   I was approaching the dock in 20-30 mph gusts. It all worked out ok, it just scared the crap out of me.the outboard starts out ok  but stalls when I open up the throttle. It also stalls when running at low speeds. I am pretty sure it is the fuel. I have also heard that these little outboards can be problematic at high altitude(6500ft). I also miss having a reverse on this motor. I must say that I love this boat. It handled the high winds very well and made me feel very safe.any advice on what to do  about the sailslugs would be appreciated. Also  I am looking for ideas if there is anything I can do to secure the head sail better after it is  lowered on a windy day. I  installed a jib downhill but it still catches a lot of wind.
I am really looking forward  to sharing  future info on this post.

Roy,
I had another sailboat several years ago and I had to take a piece of fine sandpaper to where the mainsheet clips slide in the groove. It helped a lot. Also, I just wrapped a bunge around the job after it dropped and it stayed snuggly in place.
Can't wait to get my new Legacy. Hopefully this weekend!
