somehow i doubt that! it looks great!...but tod may show us both up....gee....we can have a humility competition.........anyone else want to join in? ....remember...the last shall be first ......generally, the guys here are filled with the creative aspect of ingenuity, brilliance and beauty.....but it's interesting to note man's natural instinct for comparing and judging the ultimates....is it possible for man to live without competition or comparisons?....i don't know....sorry, i got carried away..................................

nice to see you back and it seems to be going well...good show.....are you using internal or external ballast? and how do you add it or is it built in?...i missed it, if you already told us.....i get the impression that external would be better in your case....i'm even thinking of adding external ballast to my ship........but maybe it would be too difficult at this stage......gonna look pretty impressive...yes......
ps....maybe improve the photography a bit if you can
and how are you coping?

Lucc if you use the sheets from the winch to a block on the bowsprit and back qnd you use this as a master sheet you can install 3 ring each side into which you hook the respektive jib sheet, i think that's exactly what Ray did on the Surprise.

thx , i saw what Ray did with the Surprise, therefore this solution thanx to Ray.

sorry for my poor englisch but i have another question.

Ive the jib is in the middle of the bowsprit and the lenght between jib and master sheet is (bv +/- 8cm). how great must you make the rope(between jib and ring) for moving the jib to the left and right and give the sails the right freedom to the wind.
