Sailing in Fiji



The new sprit rig is efficient and 89 sq ft seems enough.






The same 2x4 that passes through the hull supports the outboard motor on the port side and the rudder on the starboard side. A quarter rudder is close to the helmsman and requires no control lines.

Looks goog Gary! Does the recessed aft deck tend to collect any water? I like the quarter rudder you're using. I might adapt that to my tamanu. I'm about to commence on my AmuNui. I'm wondering though if I should go with new iakos to match the different style of attachment between the Ulua and the Tamanu... or just reuse the Ulua iakos since I have both a single and a double outrigger set.

Have fun!
