Just noticed the boomkin... We had one on our first boat, Triska, 1930 ish pennant sloop... It got taken out by other boats on a regular basis (I remember 3 times) just sitting in the slip... Just another thing to rattle around in your brain.... :)
Bob, I grew up on a mariner 32, and that aint no ketch..... that is a yawl as the mizzen is aft of the steering station..... ;) :P :D :lol:
On a serious note, you might want to take a look at the sailing characteristics with only the mizzen and jib up and working.. Try and get that...
