    It would be a real bummer to have your junk rig all made up, and no boat to put it on...


    Congrats and good luck - with boat and build!

    Hi everyone,

    I bought a boat at auction, a Colvin Gazelle. For now, it's a ketch, not a junk, but I plan on changing that soon. First I will sail a season as-is to get to know the boat and have a better idea of what I want out of the new rig. Sailing plans for the year are simple, head down from California to the Sea of Cortez, and cruise that area this winter. The journey to a junk rig continues!
