The family motto alternates between Reef Early, Reef Often and Moat Sail!. Perhaps unwisely I've been working on adding sail to the Black Skimmer. Unwise because the boat is well balanced, and other then the mizzen staysail both the jib and drifter will likely cause some lee helm. Not sure if the jib will actually be helpful, who knows how much luff tension I am going to be able to get on it. I've already build the test bowsprit. Can't wait to see how the drifter feels come spring.

Here's the current version of the drifter

The mizzen staysail (the only one that has been built), its been cut down slightly since this picture. The luff was to long.

And the jib.

I couldn't sort out the imaging links to get it to show up in the post, but I will look at that again later.
