IOR landfills?

pretty sure the 101 has a similar traveler/mainsheet arrangement. 

here is a better example (mainsheet winch traded out for more blocks).  I got semi-close to pulling the trigger on this one. and it was for sale for years. but just sold. good photos still up tho: https://www.popyachts.com/sloop-sailboats-for-sale/bianca-414-in-harrison-idaho-78197 

pita to view images though. you have to sign up for popyachts. which is more or less an insult. tbh.

that would be an improvement. if you could manage it structurally. the main is huge.

you'd probably have to brace a barney post laterally - so... 

it's almost like you'd want to bail on the entire arrangement and build some sort of german mainsheet system. that would have problems too though. 

there might be a reason that the Aphrodite 101 has this system. unchanged. and they still make the boat the same way.

Looks like a San Juan 30.
I examined one of these in the bay area once. it was for sale. really cheap. it was also broken. I have never seen anything else like it (except for perhaps a Farr 33 - where the doghouse looked a bit bent). 

how was it broken? hard to explain. but it looked like over-tight rigging just broke the fucking boats back.

it was conveniently parked near a dumpster.

Hollow bow to keep from burying the bow in the southern ocean, tumblehome is a visual effect from the ior bump and isn't there.

Farr knew what he was doing.
Apparently for the Whitbread where NZ Endeavour competed, there was an amendment to the IOR rule for the Whitbread that allowed them to fly Asymms for the first time.  Or probably more correctly - allowed them to be rated with A-Sails.  So that pointy bow was in effect a prod - although it looks like the tack was attached to a pole.
