I am about to put in a small balanced lug sai for my Chester Yawl, strictly for downwind... I've been told that the CY was once offered with a sailing rig and this is now the Skerry / passagemaker rig.
Anyway, the plan is to build the mast and spars from Doug fir or similar from my local lumber yard and could use some advice and information on build, materials, etc.
How tall is the Skerry mast? How thick? Does it taper? Weight? Likewise, some specs for the spars as well. Of course, trying to get everything as light as possible to keep CE down, especailly the upper... my CY is only 42" at the beam.
Any advice and information much appreciated-
Thanks & cheers,
