Sailing: Managing a Set of Problems
Spinnaker Furler Near Fail
While crew was furling the spinnaker, Tom discovers that the continuous-loop furling line is near failure.
Upon further inspection it's discovered that the splice was literally hanging by a thread.
Rapid Deployment of a Local Expert
Kathy finds a potential local resource on Facebook.
Whitney Kent, Sheboygan Youth Sailing Center, stops by Lady Slipper to inspect the problem. Whitney goes to the shop and returns with a new continuous loop that she spliced.
The new loop shows high level of craftsmanship. Whitney, aided by Mark, reinstalls the continuous loop on the furler.
Thank you, Whitney, for your expert assistance and your rapid deployment!
