Hey Charlie, so sorry just noticed this question. Not a stock cutter rig, she was converted to cutter by a previous owner. Have not had any need to employ the clutter, uh I mean cutter rig and based upon the condition of the staysails, neither did he! In a nutshell yes she is set up to be a cutter but little need at present. I wouldn't have done it but it is nice to have the option if needed. Well actually did need to drop the forestay while fully rigged and was able to do so by attaching the baby stay till work was finished, so guess i did use the extra stay once!

Bruce and fellow sailors, great video on the Heave Too you suggested! Excellent!
The challenge is keeping cool and practicing.  I try to practice as often as possible with good wind.  Gusty winds have taught me to reef early, trust my Compac 16 and keep cool!
Thanks Bruce for the post.
If not now..When?
