The Ovi Flying Fifteen – Idea One…

It’s great the way you can keep on improving the Flying Fifteen – it keeps everything moving….

The first thing to catch Howard’s eye on the Dinghy Show Ovington was this recessed jib furler.

This is pretty neat – and about time. You’ll note that the jib tack still has to be the regulation distance above the deck (100mm I think), but we had this on our FD and Dragon so long ago it hurts to think about it.  I see though they had it fitted to a chute boat. I can see the attraction with bags, but I wonder how they have kept it snag free down there?  Plus, inevitably, how easy is access through the chute hole for maintenance?

It looks great though…
