Two-Mast Configuration

Good Day All

I often wondered what is the difference between a ketch and a Yawl ??

The Yawl has a smaller sail than a ketch, the mizzen mast is usually further aft.

That's right. No further discussion is necessary.

The mizzen post is aft of the rudder post and ketch is forward of the rudder post.The rudder post is the pivot point for the rudder not the whole rudder.
