Sailbirds originally came with the mast stepped just aft of the forward aka, but the later models came with the mast stepped ON the aka, a much stronger way of doing it. I’ve decided to move our mast step to the aka. This will involve the base of the mast moving forward about 5 or 6 inches, but I can cover the forward CE movement by raking the mast aft a bit. Plus, moving the jib back a few inches will somewhat negate the balance shift too.

- “There aren’t too many small boat voyagers left, and we are they. Those of us with experience sailing, paddling, and rowing light expeditionary craft on adventuresome treks have a bit of a duty to set good, seamanlike examples to those who are paying attention to what we do, both to further the passion, and ensure that those who follow our path do so in safety. For they, in turn, will be the ones to further the passion in years to come.”
