Mar 16, 2016 · Just read that Webb Chiles had the mast and boom stiffened and upsized the standard rigging on his Moore 24 Gannet. He also added running backstays as he does considerable sailing in strong winds under jib alone. Definitely makes sense.

Webb Chiles. Such words of wisdom casually encroach on Skipper’s thoughts as he surveys his pilotage notes and assesses the weather around him. From the comfort of his 14’ open boat ‘Arwen’, securely tied on to his favourite yellow mooring buoy at the southerly end of the Saltash Bridge trots; and now substantially fortified by hot tea and cheese and marmite sandwiches, it has not ...
trailer sailing I really can't advise you on a Catalina 25 vs Hunter. I had an Aquarius 23 that I kept on a trailer for one year. I do know that setting up the mast and launching the boat each time I went sailing got to be very old after a while. I finally kept the boat on a slip the last two years that I had her and enjoyed the boat a lot more.

My boat came with a mast caddie that has a sticker on it from "Midwest Aquatics". The unit clamps on both the rear cross bar and the mast. Very easy to remove and adjust. I have no idea how old it is (guessing at least 10 years and probably closer to 20 or more), but the caddie seems to be fairly sturdy and everything works great.

~ While I have only read Moitessier's books. I have actually met Webb Chiles in person. Apart from liking boats and sailing, I can't think of two more different personalities. I know you met Moitessier in South Africa, and so by the way did Webb (in Tahiti). Apart from their love of sailing, do you really think they are that alike? I don't see it.

Re: Easiest Sails for Single Hander Since it is pretty much established that a boat with compact dimensions or a monohull meets the need here, the question on how to strike the mast is the next logical one –like it might be a good idea to avoid a rig that requires a crane to lift the mast when the boat has grown to full size.
