Review of the load on the traveler lines.

Over the 4th weekend, we took the boat out twice. Day one was light. I asked one of my Buddy Crew to guess how much effort to pull the traveler uphill while the sails were lightly loaded in about 8knts.
Her response - About 8lb.

On the 2nd trip with winds in the high teens, Peggy did the same thing and guessed less than 10lbs - I figured even less.

The new (2016) traveler really is a great upgrade.
