It makes me feel quite humble to realise how little I know about sailing vocabulary... It never occurred to me before that a mast could be riped out... Does it turn from green to red and fall off? Is is where the Port / Starboard colours come from??

As for the snaping ropes, I'll come back for week 2...

Are Laser 2000 supposed to have trapezes? Someone at our
club has them and I thought they were hiking boats

the tpreze on the 2000 is an optional extra, but i don't think it is class legal for racing

well if your looking for weird things to so with a 505, you can experiment with putting a A symmetric on it, ive now manged to get a buzz spinnaker on there and a boss spinnaker,
all for laughs, i made up a make shift pole and went flying down wind off hayling, nobody new what boat i was sailing, and i think i will have to try that twin trapeze with an A symmetric, really go wild...............

o and if anybody is selling a rerasonable 505 jib cheap i want one, mines starting to die from abuse, infact its dyed.

the whole comment about the moth sounds a bit off to me, as weve got the prodder for that very reason and our masts pivot remember and rely upon a few solid principals, one of which is that the shroud and forestay positioning has to be right.
