Re: Crab Claw on Monohull

Thanks for the information, I wish that place was closer to me. After emailing every marina and boatyard in town I have found a rotting Aquarius 23 that still has its rig. It should fit, the sail sizes are nearly identical, just a hair bigger on the Aquarius rig. Though it looks like the boom will be sitting about a foot lower than it used to...going to have to get low on the tacks!

One problem, the Aquarius was designed without spreaders. Should I just use the rig as is or add my old spreaders onto this mast? The jumpers up top as well? I don't have much in the way of tools or space so I might ask a professional to take care of that.

Thanks for all the help!
