'Minnow's' Furling System etc




 

The photos tell the story, except they do not communicate how pleased I am with the furling system, which works really well. In fact, the sail can be adjusted in a jiffy with very little effort. I put that down to all lines, including the topping lift, being led through ball bearing blocks into the cabin.

The other thing I’m pleased about is three new fairleads on the port side for deploying the fenders.

Hello Bill, she's absolutely superb. The sail sets beautifly, so full marks to Jeckells. I can just imagine how pleased you are with her. I wish you both the very best on your travels, and of course, I can't wait to read more.
