BOOT Düsseldorf / Marine Composite with a gaff sail.

There was one thing at the BOOT which was really amazing. I just walk through the exhibition hall and I saw that stunning hull in light blue. Cool lining and a wonderful wooden deck.

When I looked ahead of the rig I was astonished. I expected a cool Fat Head and spectacular spreaders, but I saw something different. There was a gaff rig. I´ve never seen such an old school rig in such a modern mode. Awesome. The sales man of Marine Composite told me about the advantages of that rig, which I couldn´t share. The main reason for the rig is that you get more power at the top with a lower rig; if I understand that right. Above that it´s something different, why not. Above that I saw about 3 manufacturers who had a gaff yacht in their programme.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
