    Used plumbers putty so far to put the transducer in the forward lazarette in the cabin but it gets loose over time. Epoxy any good? Thoughts....?

    Control line purchase

    I replaced my internal factory outhaul to a 8:1 purchase as I was never able to adjust the main under load.... Left the line where it exits the boom (safer to reroute to mast but not best option if you single hand on a small boat where any weight shift effects the course...).

    Does the bow ride high

    I moved some of the heavier stuff (2 anchors and rope and chain) to the forward lockers to counteract all the weight at the back with the outboard and me and crew.

    Proper sail for each wind speed

    You can also use a tacker that provides for an attachment point around the furled jib. If you have a hank on jib you could use a tack extension (forgot the correct term) to provide a high enough attachment point....

    Solar panels

    I have a 100w flex solar panel with a charge controller NOT permanently installed that I can use on overnight trips to recharge batteries if necessary. Also have a second spare battery on board. There really isn’t any room on the CP-22 for a permanent installation IMHO....

    Optimal angle of heel

    The single best purchase I made to get better at sailtrim was the following: Seeing the speed at all times gives you instant feedback for sail trim and heeling and its effect on speed....

    Optimal angle of heel

    As much as it is still fun (and the Admiral or guests don't start screaming/panicking)... I had water coming over the coaming into the cockpit once when I was literally staring down on the water standing sideways in the boat. Obviously for racing purposes less heeling is usually better. I got...
