    Size and Weight of 150% Genoa on 26S

    I have a CDI furler. As to your pointing question I haven't really noticed a major difference. It probably would depend on which side the wind is hitting the sail. Whether the rolled up side of Genoa is exposed to the wind or the other flatter side. One thing I've noticed is that my boat...

    Size and Weight of 150% Genoa on 26S

    I have a 150 Genoa on my 2000 MacGregor 26x. It was a replacement for one that got torn up in heavy winds. I believe the weight is around 5oz.

    Replacing Roller Furler Line on CDI-F2

    Robspan...Thanks for the help. I too have a 150 Genny so based on what you and others said (including the manual at 3/16" line) I think I'll try a compromise of 1/4" line. The procedure seems simple enough based on your experience. Again, thanks to all who responded.

    Replacing Roller Furler Line on CDI-F2

    My CDI-F2 roller furling line is about to give up the ghost. Has anyone had any experience replacing the line. The CDI-F2 manual says wrap it about 20 times and then put through the hole and secure with a knot. When my foresale is completely rolled in there appears to be quite a few wraps on...

    Steering Wheel Lock

    Thanks everyone. I've tried bungee cords but they slip. For $692 maybe an auto helm is the way to go.

    Steering Wheel Lock

    Has anyone rigged up a steering wheel lock that works so that you can stay on course when you have to leave the cockpit?
