    Pleasing article indeed, Hans Erik!

    Nothing that junk owners ignore, of course, but the article fails to mention one other iimportant point, at least for me: the economical factor!

    One of y friends who has a 30 feet catamaran has had to change his standing rigging. It costed im over 15000 €, nearly the price I paid for my 2 masted China Blue. And he has to do that every 10 years!

    When I see the prices shipshandlers ask for any piece of shiny rigging "cuttlery", I forget the few degrees to winward I suppose I loose against the pointy rigs...

    Interesting opinion article in PBO this week.
