  1. OK so call me a dumb yank, but with such a pretty boat, and no one mentioning her name, I took the long way round to figuring it out including reading about Arch Logan. Doh! It's Iorangi, and the poster is the owner apparently.... found a couple of nice close up photos - hope the photographer copyright owner doesn't mind my repost...
  2. This: http://schooner-britannia.com/squaresail.html or see Good Old Boat magazine, Nov/Dec 2015. Roller furling square rigged sail system engineered by Roger Hughes for his 45 foot (13.7m) 1977 Down East staysail schooner BRITANNIA, converted from a ketch. Not cheap ($4k not including a lot of labor and engineering) but I would argue it is easy to handle. ~225 sq ft with 20 ft head, 14 ft foot, 19 ft drop.

  4. Okay so I count nine naysayers here who are excited to pee on Lehr circling the drain vs one who has actual experience. I used a Lehr 5hp on a 19 ft Alerion catboat for two summers - it was a couple years old when I bought the boat, and it pretty much just worked. No gasoline smell or mess, no carburetor fouling issues. The 5 lb tank under the stern deck overhang lasted for two months of slip to channel trips. IIRC, the 1 lb small camping canisters that screw in the top lasted about an hour at 1/2 throttle and it was easy to keep a couple stowed for emergency get home fuel. Un
