The bow sprit seals

bulletThe bow sprit tube has been custom sealed with the best available engineered mechanical seals and thus made completely waterproof. We had to abandon the 2004 Annapolis-Bermuda race because too much water entered the forepeak through the bow sprit tube in a squall. The problem was due to the poor OEM outside seal that was not the best available in the business and did not fit properly the spinnaker pole. This problem is not uncommon for bow sprit asymmetrical spinnaker in production boats. There was a gap of about 3/8" between the pole and the original bushings (see photo at right) and of about 1/4" between the outside seal and the pole. There was no inside seal and also the bow sprit tube drained into the anchor locker. This was a deficient design and the problem was aggravated by my overloading of the forepeak cabin for the race.
bullet The J105 outside bow sprit seal viewed from aboveUpon return, Marc McAteer of  and I designed the solution for definitely sealing that leak area, with Marine Plastics fabricating two new custom-made Delrin bushings fitting perfectly the pole (the pole slides better than ever, with no play at all), defining and supplying two perfectly fitting lip seals and Muller Marine making the tube sleeve drain to the outside well above water line instead of into the anchor well (which then drains outside just above the water line). Picture at left is of the outside seal viewed from above.

OD Class Sails

bullet2002 North Sails sharkskin Main; used for one season and two months of racing.
bullet2001 North Sails 3DL Class jib; sail used for one season of racing; one big patch in the middle.
bullet2001 North Sails 77 m2 class spinnaker; 0.75 oz but the tack area has been reinforced to make it a heavy air spinnaker.

Additional sails

bulletAll sails have been properly dried after each use. All sails have been properly bagged and stored during winters in a room with dehumidifier on. None have any mold spot.
bulletKevlar Main. North Sails; late 2003; paneled; bolt rope (the bolt rope is more efficient, but if one want to use slides, they could easily be added); two reefs; one full length batten; three leech battens; foot shelf. The sail was used one season only (from September 2003 to September 2004) and is in excellent condition and racing shape. One minor patch has been done early 2004; the tear was done when the main was on deck after we doused it during a squall.
bulletWinter 2002/03 light/med North Sails Kevlar #1 155% genoa. Designed originally for the roller-furler and then recut to make the clew slightly higher when tacked to the deck; in which case, the leech will trim just below top spreader for better pointing. One hole at the leech and pinholes at the luff have been patched. Regular use for one and half seasons. Good condition.
bullet2002 UK Tape Drive 155% reacher (gold Kevlar tapes on a black Technora scrim). This is a powerful offshore sail with deep entry and a high clew that is sheeted to a block aft (like the spinnaker) and has a wide range of apparent wind angles. More stable than the spinnaker in waves. Used only a few times. Excellent condition. 
bullet1998 Tri-radial North Sails Kevlar heavy air #3 100% jib. Full hoist for tacking to the deck. Flat sail with stiff battens. Used for one race before 2002 and about four times a year since then. Good condition.
bullet2001 Asymmetric code zero North Sails (#6124618-01) spinnaker. This is a 66 m2 flat spinnaker made of 2.5 oz Norlon that can be hoisted and doused either like a regular spinnaker or rolled on its own Schaefer furler system. Condition as new.

Additional equipment

bulletOne awning that attaches to the lifelines and form a strong canopy from the mast to the backstay; Shadetree model 230; color pearl grey; dimensions 172" x 156"; four wands arcing from lifeline to lifeline.
