hI rOB,
Greased the mast in the tubes today - now swings round much freer. Will try dropping rudders down 3 inches should be OK for boom to swing round, also give extra rudder depth as mine was a bit short anyway.
Am sure you and I could manage to sail ut of the channel into the estuary even against the wind. If you know where soldiers cove is near the old Mandurah traffic bridge, it gives you an idea of the position and direction to head to get down into the estuary.
Why don't you make a time and I'll fit in around you?

The easy rig is great for larger cruising boats, a bit cumbersome for the little ones.  I had it on the early proas, but was not very happy with the work involved in setting it up or the difficulty in getting the jib setting well for racing.  .  No reason why you could not try one, but the schooner should be a better option, I think.

I wonder if you could over come the luffing by using a single easy rig
mast with foresail bigger than mainsail?
I notice letting off the aft sheet lessens the luffing up.
Was there some major reason for not as I can see puting the easy rig
on Elementarry, were you wanting to try that?
