  • This is the 3-D concept drawing to supplement the installment found in WB No. 267, March/April 2019. WB No. 267: RED PEPPER is a performance cruiser driven by a freestanding cat-ketch rig. The lightweight masts are of carbon fiber, and the wishbone booms make for simple sail handling. While this boat is a narrow sailing machine, the deck layout is easy to negotiate.
