Yesterday we shared a picture of two rigs lying side by side that were almost exactly the same length—and otherwise completely different. (Read Sunday Sailing Quiz: Whose Rigs These Are I Think I Know) We asked you to guess what kind of boats they belonged to.
Here are the answers. Rig #1 (anodized black aluminum) will soon be stepped on the deck of a 1986 Express 27, shown below in her former harbor of Blue Hill, Maine.
Rig #2 (varnished spruce) will step on the keel of a Herreshoff Marlin, built in 1938. Here she is putting that rig to use in the low sun angle of September, 2013.
Thanks for playing, and check back next week for another Sunday Sailing post.
