    Oh, I don't know about that... I think the snakes will be able to hold their own just fine. We'll have to be careful not to beat up on the little boats too much. But there's only one way to find out: Launch some of those puppies, and come join us for a regatta this summer!

    Good to hear about the forestay location being in the right place for you guys. FYI, you're correct, the aluminum viper rig is sleeved, so it ought to be pretty bullet-proof on an i550. Sorry I forgot to mention the sleeving in my original post. As far as I can tell, the sleeved section extends from the base of the mast up to the spreader brackets. You're right about the number of Viper aluminum rigs possibly available.

I have two sets of spreaders & shrouds that go with the mast. Anyone who might want to come to Austin to pick it up for an i550 project, PM me... I'm ready to part with it cheap! Cheers, F.
