Ar Sgrail (Hull 46)
Ar Sgrail has spent her whole life in fresh water on the Saint John River. We acquired a vessel with most of the original rigging and yes, to our knowledge, the main and stay are both original. We are in process of funding a new Yankee and main but not this year.
Have you ever heard of anyone wanting to cut down the mainsail boom by 3 or 4 feet and rerigging the mainsheet on a traveler bridge in front of the dodger? The effect will be a movement of center of pressure of the main foreword and thus take off some weather helm in the process. The other reason we want to do it is to install a full bimini with good headroom for me (I'm 6'3") and get me out of the sun as much as possible.
