It will be interesting to see what they decide to go with for the new rig... Right now, I'd put at least even money on the possibility of a furling boom, instead...





I must say, however, that boat wears her dinghy on its davits quite nicely... :-)


I would definitely go with inboom over inmast. Just was not an option when I bought the boat. Short of cost, not sure I see any benefit of inmast over inboom.
