    that's better - nice S4B - that low boom would keep you on your toes when tacking and gybing ?

    can we get back to boats.....sails are under load and seems overpowered in light breeze

    I like the gaff rig - mizzen seems small - is it still effective ? With soft boom - no out haul - flatten sail with downhaul and then reef?

    Thanks All@ maybe explains why all the rigging rig looked very neat - seems quite a tall mast for a boat its age

    try and bump this thread ...saw this boat at Hobart just before wooden boat festival. went thru all the boats on catalogue and couldn't find it. Put it in a different thread on SA- no one knew what design/build real nice looking boat - interestingly rigging is synthetic (dyneema/spectra) sorry, not best photo
