Ryan Sails recently designed and constructed a set of 4 furling sails for this 44 ft ketch.
The brief was to assist in the design of new rigging with external, low maintenance roller furlers on both the mizzen and main masts. The head sail and stay sail were also set up with REEFURL furlers for simplicity.
The vessel, crossing Bass Strait in thick fog, returning from the Wooden Boat Festival in Tasmania.
The owner and his wife, cruise as a couple without crew and are extremely happy with the new sail plan and the safety and simplicity afforded by the four furling sails all controlled from the wheelhouse and centre cockpit.
