The cleat on my OR bar disappeared at the beginning of a long (and overpowered) downwinder today, causing it to be on permanent full power. I talked with Kevin at OR and they will ship me a replacement loop (usual excellent customer service). However, I am on the east coast of the US and we are at the beginning of a 3-4 day SW blow.
The other bar I have is an Ozone from a Zephyr 17. It uses a single-line flag out (and unfortunately for the Rises has limited sheeting range). Does anyone know if there is any inherent safety problem if I flag a Rise to a single line as a safety? Does it make relaunch impossible? Create a death spiral? Temporary use would be on 2010 11m and 2009 8m Rises. The alternative is to use the 8 instead of the 11 and hope that I don’t need any depower.
Thanks for any insight of experience.
