RumPirate is on a distinguished road
KATE is still gaff rigged, on Main mast and mizzen mast.
The 46 foot long boom will be no more. That is a relief.
The smaller mainsail and new mizzen will permit much easier handling and offshore sailing.
Overall we expect the boat to be faster with the new rig.
We now need to get experience sailing her with the new rig.
