The unstayed, self supporting rig does appear to be a neat way to go.
JeffS, you are talking about a kit you are about to pick up. I admit I have not read every F12 thread, so I guess I have missed something, but who is supplying the kits, what is included, and based on what design? Is it the Vudu? Also, is the kit available for purchase, and if so, who do I contact?
RG is trying to gather enough people to produce a batch of rotomolded Vudus. You might want to contact him too.
I like the self standing rig with sleeved sail either, but will take the production boat anyway it comes because I believe in serial production to boost numbers.
All the best,
