We seem to have fizzled on the Plank-on-Edge/Victorian/Edwardian yacht thread, gents.

Surely someone is building something?

Have now used backs of 2 envelopes for POESY design, 36.5" LWL and 5" beam = 5 tonner. (7 to 1 feels about right). Will root about in garage for some thin ply. Am thinking in terms of one huge foresail and making main and mizzen sails and topsls in one piece each with gaff inserted as big batten. Cheating I know but the aim is a lofty rig and blow the details. Will still have 2-part masts and spreaders at the hounds.

What height of rig do you anticipate with that length of hull, tobyker?

Also, with a lofty rig are you servo arming or sail winching?

As drawn LWL is 36.5", hull  length is 40" odd, main boom 6" past taffrail, bowsprit 7" over bow. main masrt +top mast 46" over deck. Suspect that is on the tall side, as current hull only draws 8" (Largs pond) but wth. I can always make a number of rigs. However hedges to cut, bikes to ride, life to live so it may all take some time. If it works full "plans" will be published. Given the SA, I suspect a screwdriver and SLA will be pressed into service with lots of microswitches as a winch. We shall see. I think there's a candidate piece of ply behind the (non working) Brickette.
