Re: Can anyone ID my boat??
Am I supposed to see triple keels in that picture? I'd love a better picture, sounds neat. I can't help you identify the boat though.
Looks like swept spreaders, and the shrouds/lowers are well aft, judging by the boom length the boat was never designed with a backstay.
3 point rigs are common on smaller trailerables... the reduced complexity make trailering easier (think about it, leave the uppers and lowers connected for trailering, at the dock stand the rig up, connect the forestay, and you are done).
Even my S2 is basically a 3 point rig like that. I have a backstay, but it's not needed to sail the boat, its actually a forestay tensioner. Ok it does induce some bend. It does help to hold the stick up for DDW I guess, but most of that is already covered by the shrouds, and lowers, its really just a safety.
