Cabin additions made, new boom constructed and new reefing system in place. Time to try it all out.
On a not so sunny day Myself, my wife, buddies Bill and Adrian set out from the local marina and gave the Pathfinder a good test run.
The cabin shielded us from the cold winds as we beat around the bay trying out the rigging modifications. Reefing can now be accomplished mostly by standing in the cabin with hatch slid forward and hauling the sail down to its reefing points.
A couple of hours of this was enough of a try out and we eventually turned with the wind and cruised home on a broad reach at over 7 knots, its fun to hit the 7 knot mark in my little boat.
