"We try to learn something every time we go out," he continues. "This weekend, we learned that we need to work on our gray area, between 8 and 14 knots, where it gets to be too much for our No. 1 genoa and too light for our No. 3 blade. We don't have a No. 2, and if we're going to make one, we might need to change the rig to get the spreaders out of the way. It's either that, or we need to learn how to do peels on a one-mile beat. It's unheard of, but we might do it. We're also thinking about moving the cabin top forward to lengthen the cockpit. We can only fit three people in there now, and you need four. I mentioned that to Matt, our bowman, and he comes up the ladder with a Sawzall, a magic marker, and a tape measurer, and he's like, 'Where do you want it?' I was like, 'Settle down, settle down.' But that's where we're at. We're willing to do what it takes to make the boat just right."
