Re: junk rig

I once saw a boat with a single mast and a junk sail in New Haven, CT. It was cleverly named WonTon Sloop.

Re: junk rig

If the battens were replaced with wishbone structures going around the mast with sailcloth on each side wouldn't that amount to a rigid wing if tensionned properly?

On another note there is an article on good old boats this month regarding junk rig mod on a 26ft sloop.

Re: junk rig

I never understood why some people stayed attached to Junk rigs. Sure it was an huge improvement when they were invented a thousand years ago. The fact that they are not a common rig today means that the they are outdated (sailors and manufacturers are not ignorant or stupid). Jeff explained that years ago on one of the first posts of this thread.

Curiously I would say that soft wing sails (a modern trend) have some common characteristics with junk rigs, mainly in what regards to have a full battened sail more rigid than traditional ones, but in the case of soft wing sails without any of the inconvenient of the Junk rig, except perhaps in what regards reefing. They say it is easy to reef a wing sail but I don't believe it will be as easy as on a "normal" sail due to a superior friction...but i can be wrong and the problem can eventually be solved.

Some similitude also in what regards the position of the sail regarding the mast, with some sail forward and most of it aft and with the possibility to have a reasonably big sailboat sailed (and balanced) with a single sail.

Re: junk rig

The video presented about MingMing II is actually what made me start inquiring about junk-rigs or whatever you guys are calling them. I've found this thread to be very helpful, regardless of its age or heated debate. Thanks!

Re: junk rig

Keep the thread going. Who cares how old it is. I'm looking at it and now trying to get as much info as I can. New or old - who cares? Wait, the "viewing" information says other people are looking too. I guess I'll click around to see who. Wait . . . Kenichi!?

And now you're aware that I'm replying to this loooong dead thread to say that it was still informative, all the way here in 2013.
