Re: Sailmaker for unusual sails, SF bay area
Mule can't be too big or it will end up breaking the tops off the spars, I would think. Hard to recall (40+ years ago) but think our mule was about half the size of the staysail. Setting involves halyard to top of main mast and sheet to top of mizzen. Don't set it unless you plan on holding a heading for a good while. Tacking down a staysail and hoisting is a lot simpler.
