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.
