16 May 2008 - mainsheet traveller problem

7 nautical miles
Just a gentle sail up and down the coast with Maurice and Gill. Nobody at the club so pulled the boat out of the water with the car.

Found that one of the ends of the mainsheet traveller rail had cracked. I mad moulded this out of fibgreglass gellcoat. Obviously it is too brittle for when the boom gets plonked on top [is plonked technical word for it?]. So will change it again.
