    Sail is Up!

    After working on my commander since November 2016, I raised a main sail and sailed down Port Jefferson Harbor!

    Wow. What a feeling@!

    Wow! Not sure what all you have going on there! I'm not a sheet trim expert, but in the last pic, it looks like either your outhaul (attached to the clew) or your main sheet was too tight when you raised your sail. Ease both, get the head of the main to the top of the mast track and then adjust your outhaul to trim! Lucky Dawg has a Cunningham that fine tunes the luff of the main. Dunno what you have. Send pix and we'll chime in on rigging.

    But... sailing with a floppy sail beats not sailing!

    You'll also appreciate a sail track stop. Not cheap at $50, but it slides up your mast track and then when you turn the thumb screw just above the first screw head in the mast track (blue arrow), it'll keep the slides in a nice column ON the track when you drop the main - and they'll rise up the track without your assistance when you raise the main. (It stays locked in that place all season / until you remove your main)

    The requirement is for 3" block letters in a color that contrasts to the hull (they are not required in some states when the boat is documented by the USCG). The 3" sticky letters Bill mentioned are the easiest way to go and are available at most chandleries. They are your registration number with a state prefix.

    lost boom attachment slider. where can i buy another one

    lost boom attachment slider. where can i buy another one

    This is where the boom attaches to the track on the mast. It is a piece of hardware like the metal grabs on the Main sail leech (or luff? -- lots to learn) that attaches and slides up and down the mast.

    I believe that Lucky Dog posted a photo above of the hardware in question. These should be available at any chandlery or marine supply store.
