Tanzer 16, labeling the lines -- June 8, 2016 I like to have the halyards, topping lifts, down hauls, etc. labeled. It helps when I have non-sailors in the boat. In the words of one guest, "Why can't you just call it the sail raising rope?" After painting the boat, I had to replace some of the little tags. I took a neatly typed list to my sign making guy. He is not a sailor.
Normally I am pretty fussy about the boat, but I thought, "What the hell, it's a nice piece of whimsy." So I installed it.
