Re: Would You Sail This Rig Across an Ocean?

Surely there must be running backstays for the inner stays? Are you sure that this is a true cutter rather than a sloop with a removable stay. Lack of fore and aft lowers would bother me more than one chain plate. Without knowing all the specifics could not say for sure whether I would want to go offshore on this boat.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
