Yep! I'd fly every rag I've got if I could get it to work right. Of course, it don't make much sense cause Oh Joy will NEVER plane. It sure is a helluva lot of fun trying though. I reckon me flying four all up in 35+ knots on her maiden voyage proved my rigging is sound though.

What are they asking for that beauty?

It's kind funny. My wife just raises an eyebrow at me when I push the envelope. Now, she gets antsy when the wind is down. She wants to go faster just like me. How strange is that? Ya oughta see her at the helm looking for that groove. She's as bad as I am.

Only one of them is sailing, the other 5 are drinking rum with one leg up in the air...

Yeah, you could probably do everything but the spin SH and would need two for that.

Too much work... and I can probably dust that boat with just two sails up.


edit: That boat is bigger than I first thought...might not dust it...but I'd probably give it a good run for the money.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Just a clarification or two. The sail on the Zita was a fisherman, not a top gallant. Top gallants are supported by a square rigged spare if I’m not mistaken. The attached photo shows what a fisherman looks like. Mind you, Brigadoon is gaff and Zita was Marconi. I didn’t think that the fisherman on Zita overlapped as much (if any). It was a long time ago so maybe my memory… USCG, I thought that the photo was vintage purely from the yellow cast which is a sign of an older Kodacolor processed photo. Besides, you can’t get those colors in Norlam anymore (I tried). No matter what, it is a great photo and it does look an awful lot like Shamrock albeit her spinnakers and blooper were trimmed in Kelly Green and white. Great looking boat and I’d be proud to own her.
