    Decisions decisions. I quite like the two mast rig as its less high powered and leaves the middle part of the canoe less cluttered. But thanks dave for your feedback on reefing. Hope to start work...

    Thank you. Much credit has to go to this forum which inspired and educated me through the project. I love stitch and glue construction, and I love the shape. Just needs a sail or two.
