Re: new member with, perhaps, an odd question

colvin gazelle is great with junk rig--easier to sail solo than gaff...and to convert to gaff is expensive--have you priced block and tackle and parts yet--i wanted to convert my formosa to gaff rig, but the 1000 usd for each of the 10 or more blocks i needed was outrageously prohibitive.
so i stick with marconi.
if the gazelle has junk rig, go for it--is easy to handle and even sails decent--
colvin gazelles are beautiful boats and goood cruising choice...
happy sails.
