Re: Passport 41

Ray, I'm sure that boat was designed to be a cutter rig with the mast further aft, you might check on that. If you went with inner forestay arrangement already on the boat and mast, you would need to add two more winches in the cockpit. Also you can put the German made Windpilot Pacific on that stern. Might be tight getting to the ladder but doable and a great wind vane.

Looking at what is on the boat and the sloop rig looks like the first owners cut some costs or didn't want much in the way of gear.

So that you do not get kicked out of the house I'd wait till your wife allows you to really do some retail theropy. I think you could do a lot better than that boat.

Good luck.
