built a rig for my rowing dink out of some free garbage pile carbon fiber windsurfer masts (used for mast
and bow sprit... boom is a sunfish spar, thrubolted teak
strops and spliced 3 strand standing rigging
with spectra lashings... all of the aluminum
fittings are leftover 1/8"x1" bar from my mast
, used to make goosneck, chain plates, keel
strap, sprit heel... untie 5 knots and the sprit and boom fold up against the mast for easy storage
, whole rig weights less then 10lbs...
very fun satisfying project
main will be 20 sqft, jib
will be 14-18sqft (depending on how much overlap i decide on...) sails
will be cut down from old sails
or some maroon sunbrella (i have both, opinions?)
my prediction, she will sail like a witch!
