Couple of nights ago the 1956 movie, "Around the world in 80 days." was showing. Lots of shots of wooden boats including dhows with lateen (lanteen) rigs.
Philip C. Bolger wrote that the lateen was "the most gracefull of sails."
Back in the 1800's a couple of guys took a 19', lateen rigged boat across the Atlantic with no complaints.
? Anyone out there sailed one? What are the pros and cons of it?
