Re: Sailing Rig for 9' dinghy
I think that the simplest thing of all is to pick the rig from a popular similar sized boat and just stick it in. For example, the sail for the Nutshell Pram (plans sold by WoodenBoat) is readily available both ready made or as a sew-it-yourself kit from Sailrite. The spars you can make yourself from fir or spruce construction lumber. The standing lug uses nice short spars which will stow easily when not in use, but is very quick to set up when it is time to sail.
Be sure to check out my upcoming book: Satan's Sailboat--How the Flat-Bottomed Sharpie is a Clear Sign of the Coming Apocalypse, available soon on Kindle and in bookstores near you.
