During an otherwise beautifully planned jibe, the roachy leech of Te Mana's mainsail caught the SSB antenna and parted it from the spare halyard that held it aloft. The antenna itself fell gently into the cockpit and poses no immediate problem. After a quick coil and stow, it's now ready to go back into service once we make landfall. No, Martin's pressing concern is that halyard. We're headed offshore, with Montauk to starboard, sailing deep downwind in 15 to 20...

Think about innovation on the water, and such topics as canting keels and exotic laminates come quickly to mind. But dodgers Yup, dodgers. It seems a canvas shop Down East has applied Yankee ingenuity to the task of improving upon the tried-and-true dodger, or, to be more precise, the frame over which dodgers, biminis, or other fabric enclosures might be stretched. Hallett Canvas and Sails of Falmouth, Maine, has devised a double-grooved tubing, similar to that used for headsail foils, that can...

Ten years of our lives gone, said one innkeeper at a tiny town on the island of Mljet, where we spent...

Another choice would be to dead-end the shackle at the masthead and retrieve it in port tomorrow or the next day. But Martin isn't positive that the shackle's diameter is bigger than the sheave's. If it isn't, the stainless-steel shackle will fall through the mast into Te Mana's aluminum bilge, there threatening to create galvanic mayhem. Very little time passes before Martin hits upon the idea that works. He takes the fall of a foresail halyard and begins swinging it in arcs like an upended...
