    Beautiful!

    Thomas,
    Are your spars carbon or birds mouth? How do you like that style of mizzen vs bermudian or sprit?

    We could spot a monk seal in the small Cyclades this summer.
    Also our first and unique time we saw one.
    Way south of their supposed normal living zone

    Yes, the spars are carbon. The mizzen as a lug is a pretty easy affair, I like it, its beautiful and easy managed, but its also a not so important piece of sail: The area is small, its main purpose is stability, not drive. Nevertheless there is one thing that needs improvement, and this is removing the mizzen sail in case of high winds. The plans call for a brailing line (?) which I didn't install, but fact is that at around 5-6 bft you want to take that sail away. I need to come up with something here.
