    Sounds to me you a bit of a control freak and go nuts when someone doesn't do or behave as you want them too.

    If I were you, I'd seek help.

    Maybe more precise than the height of a sailor, is the height of the harness hook used. That can be varied with waist or seat harness and some harnesses enable different hook heights, but I think it also matters where your waist is in relation to your height. For example I am 6ft 1 but I have long legs/high waist. I know some tall/very tall people are longer in the body whilst leg length is relatively normal. That said, I have trained myself to use progressively lower boom settings in all but very light winds.
