I knew a guy whose boat (an old owner-finished Cascade 36), sails, and equipment was so old and worn, he used to say his boat was "junk rigged..."
But I'd like to hear more about junk-rigged boats. I recall a writer for either CW or Sail (or maybe it was here) that built a boat to cruise the world and ended up choosing the junk rig. I think it was for simplicity, ease of use, easy to reef, trade wind sailing. Doubt there's much upwind performance in that rig, though.
