    Good day, Guillermo! I didn't think you'd mind me posting your information. We found it very interesting and your credentials as a naval architect certainly give you the ability to teach us all - even about the boats we think we know so well. Many thanks!

    Mike I am blushing, I jsut spent 40 days in Turkey /Ukraine exploring the poss of starting, but the Turks they tell me one thing today , something else , next, wonderful place,
    This is Nimbus finally being used and they call each day , they are delighted, which is kinda pleasing
    But Aussies dont buy spensive monos things may change, with price fuel, who wants a Riviera swallowing 50 gals hour

    just came thru
    i would not use this rig next time, would have aft lowers, no runners, heavier stick section, hyd furlers although they replaced the bamars now they are ok, as I said once before, the leisurefurl main is very hard on luff rope , but with boom so high hard to find alt

    Are you suggesting you might be tempted to a B&R type rig?

    Was your furling boom main difficult to get working right?

    Would like to hear more about your rig thoughts and suggestions?

    hello brian
    no, the furling brand, LEISUREFURL, works well, the sail foot to luff is critical 3 degrees cut, and then you set the vang and leave it, this way the sail reefs in a tidy roll, if the sail is not cut right your roll will work towards the mast . We could reef in any weather, down or upwind There are huge loads on the reef line and a powerful winch, hyd or electric is needed on this size boat, but on pilot I could manage alone, paying out the halyard, and at same time powering on the reef line
    They are very costly, no reason to be
    I am not sure of the rig you are talking of
    The new owners dont use the runners except in heavier weather
    look here

    i fitted one of the earliest back in 89, was all sorta fabricated then, then the guy sold up, but they have always worked well, only way for superyachts too
