- I have the Chinese Sailing Rig along with Voyaging on a Small Income.
On the overlayiong sketch it is with out the sail rigging for the
sails I drew. I was planning on a more traditional rigging style. The
tabernackle would just make it more convenient easier to rig
possibly. The secound reef point was a consideration but I'll just
build a junk sail instead. I thought increasing the distance of the
sails ce more foward of CLR would decrease wether helm?

stepped far different than the locations of the masts on a Micro. To
use a Badger style Junk Rig on a Micro, one of the mast steps would
have to be right in the middle (spoiling) the cuddy cabin and the
other would spoil the cockpit footwell hatch.
On a 'one masted' Junk Rig the mast would still need to be stepped in the
middle of the cuddy cabin.
Bolger did design a Chinese Gaff Cat-Yawl rig that is somewhat similar
to a Chinese Junk Rig, which uses the 'standard' mast step locations
on a Micro [but with different and more stout masts].
