I was recently rereading a book (Flirting with Mermaids by John Kretschmer or something like that), In that book was a picture of a dhow he saw off the coast of I believe Sri Lanka. It just caught my eye as one of the most beautiful boats I had ever seen with forward swept masts, I believe 3 masts. It just looked like an arrow flying or something.
Now I know looks aren't everything, and that sort of rigging
looks like it'd be alot more work to deal with than something sloop
rigged, but I'd just like to know people's opinions on them and if there is any big reason why I should never even consider something similar but probably alot smaller for my own boat possibly far in the future.
