Re: Loose-footed sprit, etc.
- We need to be more specific in this discussion. Keep in mind there are
two different rigs commonly referred to as "sprit rigged". There is
the peak-sprit rig which may or may not also have a boom, and it is
this one that can exhibit the death roll phenomenon in its boomless
form. Then there is the sprit-boomed leg-o-mutton rig that is used on
many of the small Bolger skiffs and others.
