Example text

While we're at it, let's ask him to cut the mainsail somewhat fuller — and with the point of maximum draft farther forward — than he would for, say, a tautly strung sloop. Because the mizzen often will be sheeted closer than the mainsail, among other reasons, it ought to be sewn relatively flat. At the size we're discussing, these rigs need no readymade hardware. Absolutely none. Dumb sheaves (well faired and lined holes worked through the sticks near their heads) will substitute for halyard blocks.

As may be, full-length battens tend to be heavy. Their weight can make a small, initially tender monohull feel tiddly even in a slick calm. But, all said, perhaps more single-hulled boats should be fitted with fully battened sails. Aboard this light cruiser, the midship location of the mast will allow us to hoist and lower sail from the safety of the cockpit, and it results in a big headsail that will generate plenty of lift. Keeping the headstay from sagging might prove difficult, but Stephens has given the shrouds considerable drift — that is, the chainplates are located well abaft the mast — which should help us crank more tension into the headstay.

Having been an interested observer of boat design for more than half a century, I know how little comes along that is truly new and revolutionary. Design evolution is inevitably a series of very small steps forward, interspersed with backslides and side excursions. But Henry Scheel was always a man eager to take any trad that offered promise, and he was undiscouraged when left floundering in the puckerbrush. I suspect that with this boat he was on the threshold of one of those very small steps.
