Matt, do you know the recommended diamond wire tension, using a Loos tension gauge for the SC? I'd like to know for both moderate and heavy winds, if they're available.
I plan on doing the Hagar's run, if work doesn't get in the way like it did last year. Yeah, I know the SC isn't a race boat, but Hagar's isn't a real race either. It's more of a race what you have. Having said that, I have no real hope of winnng, my real goal is not to come in last! Though I think they give out trophys for that too. I've been told I'll be doing good just to keep up with an H16...I found that rather insulting actually...
I have a jennaker, and have a few questions about it also. I've seen videos of boats running with both the jib and a spinnaker at the same time. I've been told using a jib with a spinnaker is a waste of time, with little or no gain in speed. Your thoughts??
I've already pulled the cabin, but any other tuning tips you may have for the SC would be greatly appreciated.
