A Tartan 10 perhaps, I think the 30 is a masthead rig and less racy.

Faster's probably right... this is a Tartan 30 IIRC... not a fractional rig boat.

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.

Put a sheet of paper edge on the monitor against the shrouds. They're straight so the mast is really as it appears. No lense distortion.

Holy crap! I was on the first page and didn't realize I was looking at 23 hour old stuff.

Sorry 'bout that. I'm slower than the Cowboy Secondary.

For a rig like this (below - another view of the T33) that amount of mast bend could well be "normal". While it's still a possiblity that the backstay was left on, it's equally possible that it's prebend deliberately induced.

.. and it wasn't a Tartan 10 after all.. I didn't realize that Tartan made other fractional rigs. Learn something every day...
