Rolling and Furling

I've refitted my Ulua trailer with rollers to take the Va'a Motu.  It passed the 65 mph test with no wobbles.

I had to build support brackets for each crossbeam to make it secure for rough roads.

With the weather still not that great for sailing, I was inspired by this article to build a roller furling setup for an old jib I had.  Cheap and works great. 
If I want still more power, I could always put on a bowsprit and a roller furling gennaker :-)
