No sign of civilization

Our 30 takes us to the heart of the great plains wilderness.

P. Wormwood's S-23 deck layout

Here is the layout of my Stiletto 23. We sailed the boat prior to the addition of spinnakers or Code 0's, so there is no rigging for that. The jib sheet was set up with a 2:1 for tacking and a 4:1 for continual trimming without excessive fatigue. We could also adjust the jib lead inboard and outboard from the weather side; and had barberhaulers to pull the lead outboard downwind, when the jib clew was too loaded to hand hold. You can also see the mainsail downhaul at the base of the mast, led to both sides of the boat; and the mast rotation controls led far enough aft to rotate the mast 90 degrees to centerline.

canopy

I made a mold for a canopy and have used epoxy resin and blue carbon fiber for the 1st layer of cloth. I guess I will need to coat it with a uv protected clearcoat.... as the epoxy will tend to yellow etc over time. If anyone has any other ideas let me know. ThanksBill

ouch !#@&* Sandy

Barbara Ann was safely tucked away in the marina a week before Hurricane Sandy hit...she was lifted off the blocking and floated over to a nice corner of the yard with just minimal damage...the real damage happened when the marina owner tried to move it with a backhoe and took the mast down..and banged it around...I wish he would have called me...I was 10 minutes away and could have helped
