Re: Nautical Oddities

I was in a cafe somewhere in the Maritimes back in the mid '80's called the "Schooner House". This pic reminded me of that time!

I had a good look at one a couple years ago laying off the side of about a 60 or 65fter on the hard ....looked heavy, They where replacing it with a conventional rig....never had the opportunity to sail one.

I read a book by a Brazilian sailor who did the South Ocean in a boat with one of them rotating rigs. He felt that, under the extreme conditions he would face, the benefits greatly outweighed the problems of a mast that rotated. I saw a cat up here in these waters rigged that way as well. Heavy looking thing.
