Sailing from Lake Ontario
. We might do the Bahamas
and island hop the thorny path, OR we might take off from Beaufort
and aim for BVI's. Then we'll be hanging out in the Lesser Antilles for a while.
- (its not cruising friendly.......yet.)
- Hughes 35
- IOR 3/4 class type sail plan
- Masthead Sloop
- 150% on roller
- Symmetrical Spinnaker
- 10.27' - E measurement (smallish mainsail)
I'd like to re-rig my boat with Dux, including the headstay. I realize this means i won't be able to use my Harken furler
, which i'm perfectly fine with. I also might install an inner-forestay or Solent stay.
I'm looking for suggestions on a sail inventory
, with perhaps a code zero
thrown in there somewhere.
I've thought about using a structural
code-zero on the head
stay, with the ability to completely furl the headsail if the wind
picks up, then i'd have the ability to hoist a smaller sail on the inner-forestay.....?
I don't have any experience with a continuous line furlers, so excuse my inexperience if that sounds ridiculous.
Would i be able to hoist different sails
on the headstay w/ the code-zero and hank-on sails
? How would you rig this boat using a Dux headstay?
** I realize i can just keep my current roller furler
and rig a wire head-stay, but I'd like to rig the entire boat with dux.
