Re: Changing the rig- sloop or ketch?

The location of the mizzen mast would drive me crazy. -1 for the Ketch. +1 for the yawl.... ya'll... :>)

I may have overstated the Lee Helm thing a bit. What I really like is neutral helm tending toward Lee Helm if anything. I think I got lucky on both my Tanton 44 and my Passport 47, both boats would balance perfectly in 35 knots of wind with staysail and double reefed main..........(flat sailing and hull speed!) or maybe it was my sailmaker who got the reef points, cut and size perfect... Schautthauer Sails...
