    I suggest you spend the Christmas holydays on reading yourself

    up on the newsletters. Start on the newest(no 57) and go

    backwards. It would also be an idea  to let us know the

    dimensions of your boat  to better let us give qualified advices.

    I let you have a link to a photo review of a Rally, held in

    2010 which lets you see som well-sailing junks in practice.

    The review is supposed to be on this page too, but I could not

    find it now.

    Cheers,

    Arne in Stavanger, Norway

    I am hoping to modernizer her up some for long trip .. ocean trips etc.. I really want to sail up wind better and be able to reef smoothly.

    Hi David,
    Please could you add 'grp'd bamboo' to batten material
    and maybe -how sails are attached to yard and boom? ie lashing/tracking/?
    and  traveller(s) / fixed sheeting point ?!

    ps Translation is in pipeline but is proving to be more complicated thn I thought it would be!

    That would be my guess David.

    That is one thing I can not add and the formula for doing so is beyond me. Which is a pity as I'd like to know.
    I'd expect her to be just under 2 tonnes, Gary.

    Sorry, but it still doesn't like me, and hasn't for quite a long time. (I don't blame it.)

    Hi David

    What have I done wrong now? When I select 'View Profile I get an 'access denied', and log out and log in instruction. The trouble is that doing that doesn't help. It seems that I cannot give information on my boat. Sorry.

    Cheers,  Slieve

    I think this is a flaw in the software. It happens to me sometimes, and next day it's OK again. Have another try, Slieve.

    I filled my details in without ant problems.  I think this should be a really useful aid to anyone designing, modifying or redesigning their rig.
