Thanks Guys this was a realistic and fair, but helpful thread on the Ketch, We will take our first sail on our newly aquired Allied Princess 36 ketch from Goderich Ontario to Port Elgin this spring, we read all we can about the rig, this was really intresting to read , "A about a rig designed for the boat" We have been sailing a Catalina 27' for years, Our Ketch comes with a mizzen staysail, a roller furling and an Aspin as well. No bow sprit. thanks for info , sincerely Randy Hines

Aaaa - who cares? If it's a helpful thread, it's a helpful thread. No reason to start a new one if there's good stuff already there.

So true, These forums have been so helpful to me, and i appreciate the replies and comments, free flow of expirience, there are some strong opinions, but also fair and humble ones as well that bring back the good nugets of truth. It is easy for the greenhorns (18 years sailing) like myself to fit in, and the senior members, pick up and make you feel at home without being arrogant. I appreciate the sublte humor in the threads, but i am off thread now, LOL
My wife and I will cruise North channel, and Georgian bay in our Ketch, I cant wait to feel the difference of my wheel steered 36' ketch after my tiller steered 27' sloop.
Thanks Smackdad!

I went from a yawl with tiller to a ketch with a wheel. Also a straighter keel. Not as fun or quick, but very steady on her course, which makes for easy singlehanding.

Hi Randy, we used to sail the North Channel in our Grampian 34 ketch. Love the boat, love the rig, and love the cruising area down there. We now sail Lake Superior in our Rafiki 37 cutter. Still have three sails, just different configuration. Funny though, we went the other way; going from a wheel on the ketch to a tiller on our cutter. Both are great.

If you get a chance, poke your bow up through the St. Mary's River to Superior. The best cruising ground bar none up here. Just don't go swimming .

Mine is one-off. Designed by WD Knott, modified by Carl Brorein, built by Nelson Whitesell. She 39'6" on deck, 48' over spars, 12' beam, 5'6" draft, 16 tons (!), about 840 sqft sail area. There are pictures of her here somewhere.
