  • QuoteApparently it's been proven that it doesnt offer any advantage over the clew plate.

    disagree - there may be "little" sail shape advantage but the advantage is "on the fly" adjustment in any wind condition
    try taking your s hook off and move to another hole in 25knots, or while underway

    edit - oppps Scott's post already addressed this.

  • The Harken mini boom traveler is not cheap. I love the concept, but my 37 year old cat is not racing these days, so I'm sticking to things that make sailing better and easier. I do appreciate learning about this tool I didn't have, and hope I can get to new sails and maybe a jib furler even if it doesn't really pencil into the value of the boat.

    Keep It Simple.... Keep in mind, boats are not logical, they are emotional and boat value is all relative. And, it is much more enjoyable to replace something when you want to rather than when you have to.
