So the first lesson is up. It will propably be rather boring for most of you, but if we combine our ideas we will maybe end up with a good manual how to build a DS12.

What kind of rig are you going to put up there ?

If you are going to home make your mast anyway then the unstayed version is even more attractive because of the high stiffness of carbon cloth.

It will be the stayed rig Scarecrow designed with the possibilities it gives for ex. to sail two up and even to use a spi (have not asked him for that yet <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />).
