Chick, this is a great deal for somebody. I've referred to your pics many times and I am saddened we may never sail together on mrk 3's. Regardless, thank you for all of your help!

Sorry to distract from you thread Chick, but I am looking into a sail bag to hold my Lapwing sails with  full length battens left in.  Any pictures, diagrams, comments on yours that might help?

Sorry Dave. I just saw your post. The bag is a little longer than the longest batten and has a zipper all the way down the side. I lower the sail and tie about 3 "gaskets" (if that's the right term---if memory serves) (Ahhh, just call'em a 3 pieces of rope) around the sail to keep it from falling all over the place. Then it just lays in the bag and I zip-it-up. Both sails/bags stow below in the cabin. I love 'em!

There's no rope on a boat except for the bell :P

 

Thanks.  I was thinking lacing, but a zipper would be easier and faster to use.  I flake both sails and tie them up with 3 lines for now.  But I want to be able to stow the sails in the boat or bed of my pick up and not worry about them unfolding in the wind and blowing around/out.  I "bundle' both sails together, am thinking just one bag for both.  Any pictures of yours Chick?

I thought it was a rope until actually used for a specific purpose, then called a "_____" line, or something. But, whadda I know. Why can't we just call an "apple" an "apple". And then there's the British changing things around, like calling spreaders, cross trees and such. Not to mention confusing things like port and starboard. Over in merry old England, the ports are on the left side when you're heading down the coast, and the stars are on the right, while over here in the colonies, the ports are on the RIGHT side, and stars on the LEFT. No wonder we've all been confused since the revolution.

 

Anyway, I think it's easier to use two bags. I just lay it out on the right place on the cabin top or cockpit to insert the slides into the track, snap on the halyard and outhaul, and raise. With one bag, ya gotta keep the other one still in the bag from falling out, getting tangled, etc. It's also bulkier getting the single bag below. i don't have any pictures. Just imagine a long sail bag with a zipper all the way down the side, and no opening in the end. I'll try to remember to dig down into Breeze's cabin and pull one out this week. Gotta do stuff with the grandson this weekend. Ya might have to remind me. Lost my mind a coupla years back.

I don't have a down below.  I just want a container that keeps my sails clean and from getting caught in the wind transporting.  I only raise one at a time, so one flaked on top of the other doesn't bother me. So a long skinny duffel bag with a side zipper it is.

 

"No ropes on a boat except for the bell" is an old saying.  It means the only piece of line on a sailboat that is called a rope is the bell pendant.

Yep, that's what I said---except for the bell part. Hey wait. If it's called a "bell PENDANT", then it's not a rope either!

NOW, let's get back to finding a new home for Summer Breeze. I can bring her down to the B&B messabout in the Fall, or to the Havelock area about any time. That way, I can get in a final cruise.

   And don't forget that "red right returning" is a bad idea pretty much everywhere except the US!  I still wonder how us Murkins got that one backwards (or whether it was intentional).

And instead of cardinal marks we use hazard marks that don't reference where it is, only that it is some where near the mark.  When entering port cruising Croatia I would stand on my head so as not to be confused.  Actually, I was still confused, but it worked.
