Does anyone know if a wishbown mast has been used for a dipping lug
(although with the wishbone you would not have to dip...)? I have been
thinking about this rig for a long time, although I think I would go
two straight uprights with a lateral crosspiece at the top, to reduce
the binding downwind problem.
Such a rig would be really easy to set up on any of the box boats
because of the straight sides. It would seem to offer all the
advantages of the dipping lug without the dipping!
