The genus name Cordyline derives from an Ancient Greek word for a club ( kordyle ), a reference to the enlarged underground stems or rhizomes ,  while the species name australis is Latin for "southern". The common name cabbage tree is attributed by some sources to early settlers having used the young leaves as a substitute for cabbage.  However the name probably predates the settlement of New Zealand — Georg Forster, writing in his Voyage round the World of 1777 about the events of Friday, April 23, 1773, refers on page 114 to the discovery of a related species in Fiordland as "not the true cabbage palm" and says "the central shoot, when quite tender, tastes something like an almond's kernel, with a little of the flavour of cabbage." 
The sail is made from polypropylene tarp. The sailcloth has become stretched
(and stretchy) from use. It's impossible to tell what edge rounding was
once cut into the luff and foot. The leech follows the threadline exactly,
so it was once straight. Probably the sail has been re-hemmed and re-laced
to remove excessive belly. The sail is approximately flat now. If you're
cutting a new sail, make the leech straight, make the luff parallel to
the mast, and cut an inch or so of extra cloth into the front half of
the foot, just like the riwuit sail elsewhere on this site. The mast partner
(aka socket) holds up the boom, producing a little bit more belly than
is implied by the pictures of the sail stretched flat on the ground.
The sheet, shrouds, and anchor line are all 1/4" hard polypropylene 3-strand twisted cord. Probably in light wind no stays are used. One shroud is the forestay. The other stay may go to the overhanging end of the front aka, the outrigger side of the front aka, or the cord tied to the hole in the aft aka, depending on the point of sail.
Most Christian writers on Biblical mores and ethics point to the words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:27-20) where the Lord teaches that it is possible for a person to commit sexually immoral acts in one's fantasy life. The thoughts and intentions of the heart can be very important and as implicating as outward acts. Although deliberately feeding on lustful thoughts and acting them out in one's mind is "already adultery" in the heart, according to Jesus, temptation which is not acted upon does not constitute sin. As an old Proverb says, "One can not prevent the birds from flying over one's head, but one can keep them from building a nest in one's hair." When the factor of fantasies is added into the equation of masturbation there is no doubt we are now referring to fornication and sexual uncleanness. One can no longer claim that masturbation is a "gray area."
