Subject: Going trough the rigging
In reply to: Bill Kranidis 's message, "CE etc." on - Tuesday - 10/11/11 - 12:03pm

I am working on getting her rig in shape and contemplating a few changes (I was thinking of possible changing to a gaff rig but that doesn't seem terribly wise after closer inspection)like switching from internal to external chainplates (having some leaks etc). Some of her rigging was redone in a less that professional manner and I wanted to see what the original rig was like and original sail plan we have the original mainsail by the mizzen was replaced with a less that perfect fit used sail. Just trying to find out how things were designed to be.
Part of the complicating issue is that Grace is not a standard layout(she was built for the perkins 4.236 85hp engine)and so some of the dimensions are a bit different from the normal mariners. I'll be sending information and pictures (before and after) once we get her in a little better shape.
