I've been doing a lot of research on an obscure make of boat, because I might buy one of them. Along the way, I found these photos of a sistership from 1980 with all the original gear and rigging. They made these one at a time and by hand; and to customer specs, aside from the hull. For what it's worth, the one I'm looking at is vastly different.

Anyway, I've never seen a rig anything like this and I though some of you would appreciate these photos as much as I do:



Not much used (anymore)..

The top sail appears to load the mizzen to the point where an aft bobstay is required ... would it even be called a bobstay if it was aft?

Boomkin is the aft bowsprit
Gobline is the aft bobstay

And finally, these appear to be original, 1980 self-tailing winches. I don't know what else they would be, at least:

Not selftailers, integrated cleats
