Freedom Videos

Post by VeloFellow »

Maybe a location with links to videos about Freedoms might be useful. I found this advertisement Freedom video. You can maybe see your boat being built in Rhode Island.

Just saw this thread and thought I should post a link to a video here that I had included in another thread. That way we can keep all the video links together. For those that saw the "F21 first sail" thread, it's the same one.

I see from your video that your F21 has a couple of features that I believe are not standard: 1) self-tacking "blade" jib, and 2) mainsheet led forward along the boom. Are these common on F21's where you are located? I would be interested in seeing some details, as these are features I've often thought about implementing on my F25. Might be best to start a separate thread, instead of replying here.

Hi,

I posted some pics of my blade jib in another thread:

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13185&p=52979&hilit ... jib#p52979

Also had a discussion on the mainsheet in the original thread that contained this video. Basically the spray cover makes it difficult to access the main sheet as standard. My solution was to keep the standard fiddle block on the traveller, route the main sheet forward to a block connected to kicker loop on the boom then down to a block mid cabin roof and through the cutout in the spray hood to a jammer. This is not right to the mast but when I tried this (without the deck block), I found the sheet tension did not change too much on tacking.

My boat is back home in the drive right now with the mast down but these two pics will give you some idea of the routing.

I did want to take the sheet further forward to the lazy jack loop but when the boom is wide to starboard, the kicker and sheet will interfere with each other. I may try that and see how much of a problem it is but I suspect as shown above will be best.
