I recently picked up a used portable course but am confused about a few things on set up. I'm sure the more experienced crowd in here can answer easily.
1. Are the entry and exit gates wider than the boat guides? From measurements on diagrams I've seen it shows entry gates 98 1/2 inches wide but boat guides only 90 inches. I've always looked at courses and seen nicely aligned gates and guides all the way down indicating all the same size.
2. What is the correct distance from the centerline of the boatguides to the buoy?. I want to make sure I have the arms correctly set / extended. I found a listing of 37 ' 8.4" . Is this correct?
3. Are the lines to the buoys usually clipped directly to the small eyelet in the buoy or to a small loop of rope or something attached to the buoy. Clipping direcltly woudlnt seem to work well as the eyelet holes on the buoys are very small.
Thanks much in advance for your help!
