Unusual wishbone shaped sailing rig spotted somewhere in the NW USA.

We now know there were two vessels built to this concept, one a tall rig, one a shorter rig. They were concieved and designed by a Boeing engineer by the name of Fred Greenway.

The mast material appears to be carbon fiber

Hello Yipster,

I have quite a few more photos of this particular vessel that a gentleman out in that area sent to me, if you wish to see any?



More recently another gentleman contacted me who indicated he had purchased the 'sister ship' with the much shorter version of this same rig. I have tried to encourage his participation in these forums.

I found those other photos of this vessel and posted them under the forum subject I initiated on this rig and bi-pod rigs
