A friend of mine surrested Thunderbolt Marine
in Savannah or Hinckley close by.
Both do big yacht work
decks are expensive but there are a lot of alternatives.
Call the spar manufacturers like Hall Spars for recommended riggers.
Have you ever thought about a summer / ICW
Another shorter spar...maybe some way to have the bottom 3 feet of your keel
fabricated to be capable of being removed or replaced as needed so you could go to the Bahamas
. Float this by the guys at Boat
If you buy a short mast
and reduce your draft
you open up a lot of cruising areas.
Then when you want to sail the Atlantic, you bolt on the bigger keel
and tall mast
A number of sail powered fishing
vessels had two rigs.
Anyway, please post where you are off to as Iíd love to see your yacht.
Happy trails to you.
Mark and his painfully slow manatee crew.
