Second interview up on FurledSails.com

The first part was up last week.

This week we talk about traditional vs modern sailtypes – everyone knows I am a fan of trad rigs because of their low cost – but here I go into the influences on the other side.

I love the efficiency of modern rigs so I use all the same methods on the traditional rigs to get brilliant performance.

Also I’ll tell you EXACTLY why you should never name a boat in haste.

This is the original interview – it talks about storerdesign differences, why lightweight structures are best (if you don’t have to sacrifice anything but the weight – why not) and my low cost performance “philosophy”.

Actually it is not really “mine” but our OZ and NZ wooden small boatbuilding tradition.

Thanks again to the Furledsails.com crew – Noel and Christy – and you should have a good look at their archive of brilliant interviews.
