Re: Depowering the sails

You will need to twist the sail, so ease vang and mainsheet. If the mainsail starts flapping or ragging. Then you may need to ease the sheeting position for the jib further back or simply ease some sheet. The idea is to keep the slot between the sails open. Far better to have two sails half set wit...

Re: How many sailmakers are there in Australia?

It’s a lifestyle job that gets you out on the water following your passion same as surfboard shaper who earns ave.25/40000 pa.
Bit misleading using an average though as the Boss might be earning a hell of a lot more.

Thanks for info Harb. I don’t think I’ll rush into it but I’ve decided to fix the soft spot on the foredeck from the top so it will have to be done.

Repainting non skid areas

I am planning to re paint the non skid areas white but am unsure what paint to use.
The ‘non skid’ looks to be moulded in so I don’t need anything like kiwigrip.
I was thinking Norglass Marine Deck or similar. What do you recommend.

All that I saw had the traveller up near the cabin entrance. Have you by any chance checked that the boom and main are standard size for a pr...

There has been a couple of Farr 5000s for around 5K asking but I paid 10K for mine, it did have virtually brand new sails, the removable galley, a no rust trailer and a very new Yamaha 5Hp four stroke.. I probably paid too much, but having lived with it for a few months it was the right boat for me...

I forgot to mention Gunnadave I slackened off the keel rope a couple of inches and left it so it could drop with passing traffic. Might also be worth just jumping up and down either side of keelbox .

I had the same issue after having an antifoul done last year . I left a couple of inches slack in the rope and the wash of passing cruisers over a couple of days a eventually jolted it loose.
Fingers crossed .

Re: 6.2kts speed record for me (with the keel up)

First time I took the Sonata out for sail on Broardwater in a 10ish knot beam reach I could not believe how fast she was according to the Garmin. SOG 6.7 knots. WOW. Then I realised when I turned around I had been going with the tide and my STW was probably more like 5.
