I just joined the forum.
Have done a fair bit of cruising in from 26ft to 56 ft yachts, coastal and ofshore.
Am about to buy a South Coast 36 (Oz Design) There are a few available, however two are ketchs and I want a cutter
Has anyone got any idea as to whether the mast
is stepped further aft in the cutter
and forward in the ketch
? Logically it should be so, however these boat are scattered all over Oz and I can't practically inspect them all.
If the only difference is the boom length and mainsail
foot, then its a small matter to change this, ie overboard
with the mizzen and rigging
