Thanks again for all the kind words. I've enjoyed th whole process and the sharing. Talking of sharing, do you folks think I should write an article for one of the printed publications?

Re: Pulleys

Realistically you would need to put at least 3 people on a 3:1 system before you got anywhere near 5kn force on the pulleys. The other thing to look at is whether its 5kn on each side (10kn total) or 5kn on the oulley in general. The petzl ones normally have this stamped on them. I would be happy t...

Thanks Jim. The first outing was with the boat being about 1/3 to a 1/2 loaded and what I quickly discovered is that weight is my friend. It bucks and kicks like crazy!

Re: Can you tell what it is yet?

Dories are definitely way more sporty and can be less forgiving for sure, but there is something appealing about their looks and the fact its hand made from wood etc. So close to the water for the first time now! https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfa1/v/t1.0-9/10653297_58975220114712...

Possibly a trip on the Thompson or Fraser as they still have plenty of water. Depends on how cold it is in a couple of weeks when I get a chance!
