    First, I am aware that this thread is quite old, but am hopeful that I can locate Bataan, and his boat, Bertie, if anyone can supply contact info. I have purchased a Bruce Robert’s Spray 38 design, very well built in steel by an excellent welder to a high standard. The rig is a gaff rigged cutter, to which I am adding a mizzen to convert to a yawl rig. I live in South Louisiana in a light air environment, and the SA/Disp ratio is only 12. I am interested in increasing the size of the main, to the max practical, ala Bertie, and would like to discuss this matter with Bataan, and if he agrees, examine Bertie in person, to see if his junk rigged main could be converted to a gaff rig. My email is jimb522@yahoo.com. I am also perfectly willing to do it in this forum. Thank you for any help.
