Thanks all. Fore armed with all these techniques I sense victory.
Devildog, I love your idea; think I'll try that first. By the way, I also have a 36 foot sailboat called 'Savage' that I race in Long Island Sound. If you're ever in the area you should come race with us.
Not doing offsoundings. The yard just re-installed the keel after fixing a loose keel bolt. Rig goes in tomorrow and re-launch on Saturday. American Yacht Club Fall Series next two weekends then Manhasset Bay Fall Series for the finale. Also chartered for Key West Race Week.
