POWER Two cyl. diesel, 20 to 30 H.P., under bridge deck
RIG Free-standing gaff rigged schooner with overlapping fores’l,
self-tending jib and fisherman tops’l. The jib is set flying; luff tension is provided by a downhaul. The jib is lowered by luffing up, releasing the halyard and downhaul, and stuffing the sail and club-foot into the fore-hatch. The mains’l clew is seized to a ring which slides forward when the outhaul is slacked, bringing the mains’l on deck. This rig is one of the simplest ever conceived; yet it has power, versatility, practicality and economy. Howard Chapelle felt it should be revived for use in cruising yachts because of these qualities, without modification.
