I like the fleet i’m in thanks Bert and as you say, Carbon RIGS were talked about eight years ago but things have moved on a lot since then, including the Wayfarer.
I am only talking about the spi pole, not the rig, I would not support that in this class.
If you dont want one, don’t buy one!!
As for wanting more costly items for my boat, think of it another way!
New items cost more yes but as many of us have done, improving your boat for yourself and making it possable for others to use and enjoy there boat has gone on for more than fifty years in this class, thats why its still here and others are not!!!
Having now just found out the timeing of any proposition it looks like I cannot put this forward for another year.
