Well after some work I got to take the 16 to the lake for the 1st time. Picked a day that wasn't really wind cause of the fact that the boat hasn't been in water for like 6 years and I haven't sailed in about that long.

Anyway short video a friend put together for me.

Enjoy.

Of course, the Blue Prism is an awesome sail pattern. Mine is 88863.

I was surprised that you have a furling jib. Did it come that way or did you have the jib re-cut?

Nice boat. Where in Texas is that? I do most of my sailing on Galveston Bay. One word of advice, get your weight further forward in light winds, and use your crew to balance the boat out. Also be careful about stepping on the decks.
Edit: I have the Yellow Prism on my 18.
