yes, just people who have the rigs.the Bermudan set is the same...fractional, ketches, etc. And per materials, they benefit all- I've got Harken ball bearing blocks.
but.... bamboo-I wish it grew here!

Re: junk rig, why, advantages?

Yes. On the general note.


How much technology X improved over period Y is often irrelevant. Because the question is rather how well technology X meets the needs of the job in hand rather then how good the technology is.



Mind the wheel, the knife and the fire have not been significantly improved over last 1000 years or so. And yet, they are our first choice in many situations.


Oceans have been crossed in wooden boats with square sails. And today this can be done again and again too.


Junk rig seems to be a very old design, just look at old Asian decorative art. The rig is still around today.


Improvements in materials benefit everybody at about the same rate. And also at the same price. Just that the price/performance scale is exponential.


You want to go .1kt faster ??? clean that hull.


You want to go 1kt faster. Well. Pay $$$ (a new sail, a carbon mast, a ...)


Unless you are racing and making money (or ego) going so, skip the chase. Get her sail as well as she would, then just enjoy the ride.

Re: junk rig, why, advantages?

Gents, a bit different question, would someone know for Mingming I why Roger Taylor, selected the Corribee instead of Coromandel 21? In the Coromandel descriptions is written its basically a Corribee just factory made to be a Junk rig, hence the cabin is bigger as one does not need to go so much to the mast. I'm quite into the Coromandel, but would like to understand why someone witch such experience like Roger being is into Junk Rigs has not selected the boat for his first Mingmin and took the Corribee instead. Does anybody know?

Re: junk rig, why, advantages?

Have you looked at when they were produced?


Maybe the other boat was not available yet, or fewer were on the market.


With boat projects, we are often bound by what there is. One design being older and more available (and at lower prices) could have been the answer (?).


Look at the dates. What year did he build his boat?
