    Hello Rael,

    I like your boat, and your ingenuity.
    It looks like you'll have a lot of lines to pull while sailing.

    I have a small outrigger trimaran, and found out that everything that can get tangled/jam/unscrew/shake loose/get stuck etc. will, and often at a not so good moment.

    It might be a good idea to secure all you shackles/turnbuckles with a retaining ring or use loctite ?

    I wish you nice sailing (quite soon hopefuly) and look forward to the video's.

    Cheers, Hans

    Thanks Hans, I usually tighten shackles with a pair of pliers.... never had a problem. but yea why not a drop of loctite will be spot on.
    Sailing very soon!!!!
