Check out this Craigslist Gem! Anyone care to explain what in the hell is up with the rig on this thing?

It's an A-frame masted rig. The single sail kindof like a jib.

Here is an example:

Humph! I remember it being on J dock, always wondered where she went.
It was a pretty interesting boat that I wished I'd had the chance to ride on just to see how well it worked.

Less worried about the rig than the bloke down below.

Never seen demin bib foulies before.

Looks like he fell out of a John Deere ad.

I actually think it is kinda cool....but suggesting, even indirectly it'd outlast a mac26 in the apocolypse is a bit fucking ridiculous

I always wondered about this boat. It was at Port Orchard for a while a few years ago. Actually saw it unroll the sail once. Wondered how it sailed.

Definitely like my boats apocalyptic, mainly for the intimidation factor at mark roundings and tight anchorages.

Does it come with a jar or two of dirt?

How about an orange tree?

For $27,000 it better come with some damn dirt.

There must be reasons why no one else does this, but points have to be awarded for innovation and thinking out of the box:

Am I the only person that thinks a 47' Carbon/Kevlar/epoxy anything for 27K is a steal?

Still 47 foot long, with a new power plant installed - for 27K - unless the thing is delaminating like crazy or has a soggy core, even as a launch she seems like a bargain - (disclaimer aforementioned statements made under duress of no coffee and 4 hours sleep)

I guess it would depend on the actual hull (lines, etc) and if you were confident of getting a second hand rig at a good price and had the appropriate structure for a step, partners, etc.
