Trimming my sail, (literally) not by pulling on the sheet, but...using......

Well, you know the nautical statement.."Trim the sails." this means: pull on the Main Sheet (the rope) or pull on the jib sheet, (to smooth out any wringles in the luff.

Well, I'm Trimming my jib sail with Scissosrs! Yeah,,,remember, that mid December storm damaged beyond repair my Jib sail. The Jib halyard also

snapped and there is no way to take down this damaged jib except by standing on a tall ladder and cutting it down.

So,, I'm litterally "Trimming the jib sail with Scissors!" Man, I'd like to get back to Windsurfing!

Quetzalcoatl out.
