      What size is the balanced lug? Its Coe is a lot further aft than the original. It will be interesting to see how she sails.

      Do you intend to keep the mizzen?

I first was tempted to take the JBC rig which would be so much easier to transport and rig than Oldshoes. I then went on to notice that JBC does not have the well in the bow and stern, thereby effectively sailing in her full length rather than a 8.5' watertight envelope within a 12' boat. Then, of course the leeboards are great fun and so on and so forth.
