    If you to find yourself stuck in irons, as captain of a full rigged ship. I'm sure Cap'n Smollet knows this stuff but some of us others may be out of practice:sosad:
    From what I've read, different boats as well as different rigs may behave a little differently. Maybe Fatty needs to spill more air on the main to keep from coming up too high and tacking back over. He uses the topping lift instead of taking a reef. It may not work that way for him if he had more headsail out.

    Interesting. Nice way to sabotage the foil and spill pressure.
