Chris, Thank for the information, I will look into that book.
I started in RC Boating but build
ing and racing several classes of sailboat
s, including several US1Meter class. Being a much better build
er than skipper
, I was drawn to schooners that many club members
had. Got interested in working sailcraft due to the history and the slower, power of these craft.
The Gaff Rigged Handbook by Jihn Leather is one of my favorite build
guides. Yes, I really like Gaff Rigging. This book was great for lots of rigging
details and sails
... See photo example.
