Re: Sailboat without a mast

You could also balance the boat by stowing a lot of heavy stuff above the water line. Can't see that it would have been hard to mimic the arm and weight of the mast by lashing a bunch of jerrycans with water on both sides mid ship for example, or on top of the cabin.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
