- As I see it, since the Big Tortoise is not actually the same boat as
the Brick the placement of the rig, the mast and leeboard would have
to be changed from the Brick to account for the different dimensions.
Actually I Emailed Payson and asked about the sail, he said he
thought the lamb chop sail designed for the Brick would be O.K. on
the Big Tortoise. In other words the size, 59 sq. Ft. isn't it, is
O.K, but the placement on the boat would be different than the brick.
The area of the leeboard and rudder are probably about correct. If
you're not comfortable placing them yourself and you want to sail,
(I'm making mine for rowing and then I'll decide if I want to add a
rig) then it sounds like you need Brick plans. Do you have Bolger's
"Boats With an Open Mind"? Brick plans are in there. I understand
your frustration. I just kind of like the idea of making the Big
Tortoise. Actually it's practice for making a Micro. Charles
