Yeah, that was why we took the mizzen out, and that was like, 25 years ago. I then moved to an outboard rudder, so now my tiller ends where it used to begin, opening up the cockpit. Instead of a traveler I have a bridle set up. I hate a clutterd cockpit. I do miss the way she used to short tack with the mizzen. I had posted some pics on another thread titled " Key west to Guanaja, we made it" or something like that. I don't know how to drag those thumbnails to this thread, But there is a good pic. of My father in law at the tiller, standing where the mizzen was. There is also a pic of my Soverel on my page, again I don't know how to move immages a round this sailnet thing, it's frustrating for those of us who don't even know what URL is never mind what do with it. I have a ton of good pics of the boat and it's restoration process on my face book, but getting them here to sailnet has been a losing battle for me.

Re: Good Blue Water / Shallow Water Compromise

May also wish to look at older Hinckley B40s or the smaller Shannons. They are definitely "centerboard blue water boats". Given they are narrow with external teak to maintain their prices have come down quite a bit. However, owners tend to take very good care of these jewels and they were built right from the start so even an old one is likely to be Bristol fashion.
