Badgered Cat Posted December 19, 2017 Report Share Posted December 19, 2017 Hi guys. I thought that I should let the Association know that I have changed my sail number. I thought I would do this, to save any confusion, between Marks's Maricat and mine. As you all are aware that I purchased Mark's old sails. His sail number is 5009. So what I have done, to be easy and simple is added the numeral 1 to the end of the number. So effectively my sail number is 50091. I certainly hope this is all ok. I know it would not have made much difference with me sailing in Tasmania, as there is no other 5009 racing in Tasmania. However I am thinking o the future, for if and when I get up to NSW to race with my sails, as I do not want confusion to happen on the water. And anyhow, it makes it seem as though I have a more recent maricat with that number.....LOL!!!! And what a hoot if people think, that Maricat have made 50091 different boats.........Funny as. Anyhow, purchased a few more goodies today. Brought a new mainsheet as nine was a little short. I purchased 14 metres of 8mm double braid, and it is colour matched to the boat.....LOL!! as it is purple in colour with a yellow fleck through it. Plenty long enough now, and it means i have one continous mainsheet, and traveller sheet. When I took the old one off, it measured 6 metres ....definitely a little short. Just the new downhaul to be fitted tomorrow, and then maybe Friday, I will take it to my local beach and rig it for the Xmas New Year break. I hope to maybe go for an afternoon sail with it on Friday. And then next Wednesday, is the start of a a large offshore yacht race, which is the start of the Launceston to Hobart yacht race, a good friend of mine, with his Maricat, and myself with mine, hope to follow the start of the yacht race, from the start line, and follow them through to the heads of the Tamar River. So I will let you know how my first sail or 2 goes. And hopefully my wife will get some decent photos of it sailing on the water. Cheers David.
