Re: Mainsail Downhaul System

Hi

Main Sails on slugs in all boats I know off do not always come down perfectly.

One possible solution (if you are single handed) is to fit a line opposite to the halyard from the cockpit to the mast foot and up to the sail V tying it to the same point of the halyard.

Re: How many people can you safely take in a X

Hi The European certificate classifies macs for passengers/crew: Type 5 - Sheltered waters : 8 people max. Type 4 - Coastal waters: 6 people max. I think it is reasonable. Once I took 8 adults motoring in a lake and the boat was very sensitive to people moving inside the boat. People over the cabin ...
