zeehag is on a distinguished road
so she was changed to marconi rig?? yipes. wouldnt a yawl stick interfere with the main with the gaff rig--boom is an overhanging boom---.. so she would have had to have been converted to marconi for that--dang-- she was sooo gorgeous with her original rig. more valuable as an historic treasure also, not?
i really enjoy the look and feel of the gaff riggers as they sail...elegant. marconi changes looks and feel of the sailing. am looking forward to seeing how she was done-- she is a beautiful boat no matter what her rig....lines are sweeeeeet...
