Here are some questions I have regarding my new boat. Feel free to answer or add your own. What are the different types of spinnaker bags? What are the mounting standards? Are there specific types for different sailing techniques? Never used one before, any input would be great. Why is 470 gear hard to find/expensive compared to other classes? Has anyone reinforced a 470 hull by laying glass from the inside? My boat has two “doors” (not to be mistaken for an inspection port) that can be opened to let the hull dry/make maintenance easier. Is it possible to role a 470 jib on a %110 furler or do I need a specific type of sail? (I probably won’t bother, just curious). Why don’t you see the 470 class out on the lake? I thought it was a pretty popular class, should have seen at least one at home... Why are 470 races hard to find? I would have to drive a bit to nearest... aren’t they an Olympic class?... What’s the easiest way to learn how to effectively trapeze? Can a crew of two ~230lbs (~100kg) be able to right a turtled 470? Crew of one? Can you sail solo, single trapeze, on a 470? While flying a spinnaker? When a 470 becomes suddenly over powered, and the skipper fails to luff the sail, would the crew on the line be brought over the hull and onto the mast/sail? Is there a safety release mechanism for this scenario? ... I can see how this can become very dangerous very quick. Why do you sail a 470? Thanks for any input!
