Hi everyone! Wow what fun this is..
I do not care how people vote on this topic as everyone has their own opinion.
Some are clearly more vocal then others, Some like playing with boats and some like replacing sheets and halyards just because the cover broke..

This boat is fantastic and a joy to sail. That is why Lee and I have been in the class since 2008. I do like the simplicity but I also like tinkering in a lower scale.

Anyway enjoy and see you at the next event!

Brad

I agree with Peter B....I'm a rigger and it's easy to whip them up but there really is no need and it drives up costs across the board. Rondar will HAVE to add this to the new boat otherwise people will complain that the boat isn't 'race ready' etc. I'm on board with the sail fabric changes though as there is some cost/benefit there.

I jinxed myself by posting in this thread...we got TLEd in a drifter in Sarasota two weekends ago, but I don't think tapered sheets would have saved us.  Woof.

Apparently the snow tapered off later.
