It's a Tall Rig!

Hi All,

The one question that had not been answered got an answer this week. I did not know if my Allmand 31 was a tall rig or not (2' more mast). Bought a tape measure and used the main halyard to measure the mast. Got within a foot of the printed specs... could go either way. Then this week I found the sail bags... oringinals labeled "ALLMAND 31 TALL RIG MAIN" and one for the jib also. This means I'm supposed to have the lead keel also (versus cast iron for the not tall rig). Don't know that any of this makes 2 hoots, but I'm good with it!

It matters, lead is more costly and more efficient. Ditto the tall rig.

Re: It's a Tall Rig!


Its not the mast, its the lead in the keel. I bought my Allmand 31 in October and when the surveyor put the magnet to the keel and it would not stick I said ""YES""! With the 46+foot mast and the lead keel we have a really good cruising sailboat that with a good skipper can run with the big dogs. After the race they can all come over to your boat to have the wine and cheese since there is lots of room for the guys and the girls aboard an Allmand. If your ever in the Carolinas looks us up in Washington, NC. "ALOHA BANKS II"

Getting ready to re-launch;
