Need Help Planning a Lugsail to replace a Bermudan
Hi, I am considering building an 18 foot stitch-n-glue weekend cruiser sailboat whose designs include a bermudan sail and mast, etc.
However, I would like to build and use a balanced lug sail instead.
For a comparable lug sail, do I just determine the square footage of the bermudan sail and design a lug sail of the same square footage (and a mast to suit), or is there more that needs to be considered?
Thanks for any help you can offer
p.s., this is the boat I am considering, though I am pretty sold on trying the lug sail even if I ultimately build a different boat. http://www.boatdesign.net/nyd/P590/
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
