Re: Pic #3

Okay,
I fiddled with the board's attachment settings and turned on 'Thumbnail' so you get a smaller version of your uploaded pic set inside your message and then when you click on it, the board will give you a fullsize one.

The RC scores us on PHRF, but everyone is 165 so finish order it is. True what they say about prep and boat handling. Out here, 1 mistake costs you 1 place in line,...

Jack Pole (Stern Mast Support)

I know there are several different 'Jack Poles' around the class. I'm referring to the pole that you place on the pintles to support the mast while raising. Would any one care to share a design for one of these?
