I would opt for a gaff catboat rig for easy handling, dousing, and stowing. You want a short mast, long boom, and rather short gaff. Use aluminum tubing stuffed in sleeves sewed in the front,...

The original question asks us to evaluate "heaviness", not size, not hull shape, not what percentage is ballast, or how much sail area drives it. A "heavy" boat, to a designer, is one with a...

Fuel Tanks

I agree with Rich regarding black iron tanks, however be sure to paint the bottom of the interior, also. No matter how careful you are to exclude water in the fuel, you need only 1/16" to cause...
