What rig was used (in detail) on BEOWULF, and why?
Your best bet is to take a look at the detailed post on Beowulf on SetSail: https://www.setsail.com/beowulf-the-ulti.... Also, there is a ton of detail on Beowulf's construction in the Dashew's Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia book, which is a free download on SetSail: https://www.setsail.com/free-books/.
I really Wanted to purchase Deerfoot 2 a boat I have admired my entire sailing life but missed it. I am also very sorry for your loss. I know boats and mostly agree with your designs for world family cruising. I am planning same with my two boys. I hope to one day own one of your fantastic boats so I can share the world with my boys. Perhaps you would share with me knowledge if gained of good used boats that may come up. I would truly appreciate it. Thanks, Capt. Jason WrightSetSail responded on 02/05/2018
