Speaking of Schooners

Speaking of schooners Phil Bolger drew this boat some while back and it is simply what I'd personally like in a larger size say in the forty foot range! The build was by Sam Devlin of Devlin Design and by all appearances an exceptional job of it.

For those folks who are not "Lug Nuts" the rig is a balanced lug ( as opposed to a standing lug, dipping lug and so on) and in the not too distant future I'll be writing a lot about balanced lugs and just why they may be the best rig around for cruisers...but a LOT more about that later!
