Mainsail Flattened. The mainsail had become more full over the years with age, stretching, etc and so I had a sailmaker in Lagos, Portugal flatten it a bit. It’s better and, more important, it furls better ie it's easier to unfurl. It used to occasionally stick and take a bit of effort to unfurl. There has never been a problem with furling funnily enough.
Dodger/Bimini Joiner – Velcro Edges. The ‘joiner’ covers the gap between the dodger and bimini and is attached when needed utilizing zips, which leak when it’s wet. I decided to attach flaps over the zips and sewed some edging with Velcro attached so that I had a more water tight join, certainly much better but not perfect by any means. The joiner is a terrific bit of kit and makes a big different to shelter/comfort in bad/wet weather. The added Velcro flaps made it even more effective. Vitally, this ensures my iPad & navionics continues to function, by keeping the water off the screen (see more comments on the iPad under Comms & Electronics).
