53264Re: two modifications of Micro rig?
- Mar 29, 2007Dan,
I am currently building a Long Micro, and the plans call for 5/8 inch
"T" sail track. The same should be fine for your Micro, as others
In regards to a mast tabernacle, Jason Stancil built a micro-like
/navigator-like boat a few years ago, with a mast tabernacle. There
are some large pictures of his boat hiding in the files (not photos)
section of Bolger 6. Worth a look. Jim Michalak's newsletter had a
good article on mast tabernacles a while back. You can find a link to
his newsletter from the Duckworks magazine website. Both are
excellent resources. My advice? Consider any modifications very
carefully- but build what you want.
