The strain is on the mast more than the sheets; sheeting in a junk rig is very easy I understand. I have not sailed a junk rig yet but I'd love to!
I would go with junk rig also.

Would you agree with the author that the Maltese Falcon and Black Pearl are aerorigs? It seems the internet refers to them as DynaRigs which might just be a rose by any other name.



They look different to me a layman but structurally I suppose the could be the same.


Boat in the photo above has an Aero-Rig or however they want to spell it.

DynaRig is something different.

Correct. All the other “photos” above are actually movies.
