A Ketch into a Cutter...or not
The Admiral is not scoffing anymore anytime I'm talking about "upgrading", even starting to join in looking at options....
I've always been partial to the Bayfields or Cabo Rico's, but as it happens, the ones I can afford are all ketch rigged.
Looking at the amount of rigging on a ketch and considering we will mostly sail shorthanded, what are the options to remove the Mizzen, turning the boat into a Cutter? (it looks like one can get lost between all the riging....)
How will this affect handling? Cause major weather-helm issues?
Any mods needed to the main? Maybe extending the boom?
Or, am I looking at this wrong, does the ketch provide better options with the various sail configurations and should I not mess with a good thing...
"Boat-less no more...
