Re: Questions about Single Line Reefing

Hi Derek I used single line reefing on Wild Cat which had a small main sail and used blocks at the clew and tack as friction is your enemy. It worked fine but I prefer Marlins two rope system (one clew, one tack). Okay it uses two more jammer's but its fast and all from the the safety of the cockpit...

Re: Port Ellen Pontoons

Just back from Islay and spent a couple of nights in Port Ellen. V.g. pontoons - good depth even for large boats, free electricity and very reasonable price. All in all a very pleasant visit.
