Re: Prop size for 4-107

JonB;
I never really thought about it. I design the rig prportions by eye with a target SA/D in mind. General rig proportions will be a fucntion of the type of boat I am after and the position of the keel.

So,,,I pulled out my own book and went through it looking at th sloop rigs I have designed. In almost every case of a masthead rig the fore triangle is much bigger than mainsail area. The closest I found to a "square rig" was, MOBISLE, LOON and WHITE EAGLE. They are not strictly square but they are close.
