So a few updates from the last couple of months...
I've launched and retrieved solo a couple of times. My trailering skills are improving.
Finally figured out I have hull #39.
Also, got that pesky bolt cut off that was impairing the centerboard to come all of the way up.
On to the questions:
For downwind sailing, do you let your sail lay on the sidestays? I'm unsure on the whole idea, and would like some guidance.
The other questions... In regards to the centerboard uphaul, can it be replaced only when the centerboard is down, and how is it attached (tied on or a shackle of some sort).
