TIH has masts....


Rig up, Triatic stay not installed yet. This might explain the aft rake of the mizzen mast (very scary).


Main mast through cabin top.
and anti fouling bottom paint. Painting being done by Larry of "Wookie Marine". Nice to be able to paint barefoot in November.

Gerry, I am curious about the P and E dimensions on your ketch? I have been told that the Westsail 42 ketch is a bit conservative on the sail area and was wondering how the Whitby compares.

The Westsail is

Main P=44' 1", E=16' 6"
Mizzen P=26' 5" E=10' 0"

WHITBY 42 KETCH
I J P E
49.0 15.5 43.0 15.0

PY EY
30.8 11.0

If I read the figures correctly it would appear that the Whitby 42 has a smaller main and a larger mizzen that the W42.
