Re: Centennial 2 Pictures
- Centennial 2, what are the changes from Centennial 1 assuming there
was a Centennail 1? I liked this boat the first time someone brought
it up on bolger groups I have a picture of the drawing. What is the
sail rig of the Centennial 2 in the picture?

the US Centennial.
The CII rig has a large 4-sided sprit main and a 3-sided sprit

Centennial II has a deep rudder, on a through hull
shaft. How does one remove the rudder/shaft to allow
a Centennial II to sit on the mud? I have some ideas,
the most direct is to take a swim, other ideas invoke
the spirit of Rube Goldberg.

60 another related one. Were I to build a CII (and I'm tempted to do
so one day as a companion boat for voyages beyond the capability of
the I60), I'd probably include an I60-style retractable endplated rudder.
