    Hey Doug,
    Where are there some good photos/drawings of the rigs on these boats??

    I notice some don't appear to carry ANY spreaders at all

    Hey, Brian-you might look on the Vendee site(post #1 in this thread) or google Francois Chevalier who does great renders of many different boats. I think the IMOCAS use big on-deck spreaders.....
