Sorry this is so late in coming John, but thanks for the tip on including photos in posts. This is how I rig the Cunningham (green 1/4 inch line on our boat): The running end leads on the starboard side of the eye down from the sail tack eye, then through the block at the base of the mast on the sta...
I'm really sorry, but I don't know what you are all talking about. It's barely the beginning of the season...if you're in ARIZONA! The skies are blue. The weather is perfect. This year all our big lakes (Pleasant, Roosevelt, Havasu) water levels are highest in several years. Even Lake Powell, a day ...
I've not noticed much enthusiasm (or anything else) for the Sage 17 on this Forum lately. So here goes: I am loving this boat! I just came home from multi- days single handing on Lake Pleasant in everything from moderate gusty winds to dead calm, at the end of an abbreviated season on my part. So I ...

As always, the scenery and surroundings were uniquely beautiful and inspiring, but trailer sailors be advised: The lake is extremely low at present (down 130 feet). With the upstrea...

I'll be recovering from surgery, but am hoping to be up for this event. I'll know for sure in early February. With regard to the possible RAID event, I have a good location in mind, where I've enjoyed boat camping several times. It's a sheltered anchorage in a fairly roomy little bay about 2.5 miles...

Good to hear Sal. Been kind of a crazy year all around. Can't get enough "cockpit time" in these wonderful boats. Keep up the good work, and we're all with 'ya.
There are some differences in sailing a 15 and a 17, but you'd enjoy being out on the water with a bigger headsail. We have a Sage 17 that we sail under most conditions (light to moderate winds) with a 150% genoa. It makes a big difference, and the boat becomes a much more lively performer on all po...
Is there a way for users to post photos on this forum? I have a close up detail photo of the Cunningham threaded through the second eye above the mainsail tack with the sail lowered. When I was learning to rig our Sage 17 ("driveway sailing") I took detailed photos of the process until it all became...
