It's a bit frustrating still being a powerboat but we're almost on a roll!
Losing your rig in the Caribbean is always a bit problematic after the fact as the materials for replacing the rig are always someplace else. In our case, I'm currently waiting for epoxy and glass fabrics, stainless steel for new chainplates, Dynex Dux for the rigging, aluminum for the deadeyes, a variety of sail making stuff (cloth and notions) to build the new sails and some Glowfast tape from down-under!
So it goes...
Of course, once all the stuff is here it's a couple of weeks of madness followed by a quick round of sea trials and hey presto we will be a proper boat again!
Not that there is any rest for the wicked as a friend needs his walkabout bulkhead sorted out and a new interior (galley moved and a new cabin built for his daughter) so not a lot of time for the boredom thing...

Improve Your Night Time Performance - Don't Get Left In The Dark!
Although 'glow in the dark' has been around for some time, new technology has brought Glowfast straight to the yachting community.
Kayospruce supplies the Glowfast range, including the revolutionary 'luminous draft stripes' for sails. For the first time, yachtsmen will be able to see sail shapes without a torch and maximise boatspeed through optimum trim at night.
Glowfast stripes provide more than 20 hours of visibility, with just 10 minutes of exposure to light. Stripes then recharge when exposed to natural or torchlight.
They can be retrofitted or fitted to new sails. Also in the range are rope clutch labels.
Glowfast stripes can also be used for many other night time applications!!

It's been a concern of mine for some quite time that we will be sailing the Tybee with a black spinnaker and if we end up sailing in the dark how that would play out. I was wondering "how will people see us?" "how will we see our spinnaker?" we will most likely be too tired to hold the flashlight on the spinnaker. I tried going to local sailmakers here in RI but no one had anything that would work well enough.
A great solution came across when Glowfast Marine was featured on the main page of Sailing Anarchy. Glowfast's glow in the dark sailtape was featured as draft marks and chevrons on a bigger boat. I immediately called Jason at Glowfast and he agreed to send me a 10 meter sample. There is a cool history that is tied to A-Cup stuff on their website (click logo at right for link). In addition this stuff glows for 20 hours after just 10 minutes of light exposure! I tried it out in some dark rooms and it was really neat.We stuck the chevrons on the other day and they look really cool... I just hope we don't actually have to find out how well it really works! I'll be sure to let you all know how it goes if we do.

Glowfast Luminous Sail Tape makes waves on crew.co.nz.
"We didnt actually use reflector tape but instead 'glow tape'. It actually absorbs light and charges up during the day, then glows all night. its bright enough to see the exact shape on each speed strip and also under the woolies on the genoa.
Better than relfector tape as you actually need to shine something on reflector tape to get it to work. We used both for the round north island race and it was pretty handy.
Mine was supplied by Glowfast marine for a trial, and I must say it was much better than anything I have used before.
It is highly recomended for night time sailing and sure makes a difference"
"Booboo gave me a little bit of the glow tape when I picked up some sails on the friday before the race. I cut it up into some nice little bits to put on our sails if we were going to be out there for a while but didn't get to use it as we piedys finished at a reasonable hour.
So it sat in my bag all day without much light etc and it was glowing away in there when I got our our late dinner back on the wharf! Its cool stuff and we definitely want some for coastal! :D"
