Other Offshore Gear:
"Blues" is fitted with the upgraded Carbon Fiber Selden Mast and Park Avenue Boom. This equipment is much lighter than the standard in-mast rig and is able to carry a proper mainsail with a full roach. The boom is v-shaped which, along with the lazy jacks, allows the sail to be easily reefed or simply doused into the boom. Stowing the main is foolproof, as it essentially flakes itself into the boom cradle. And raising it is easy with the electric halyard winch. This is a modern solution for easy and jam-proof mainsail handling, with the benefit of improved performance with a full proper mainsail.
The triple spreader rig is keel stepped and both the staysail furler and the headstay furler are a Selden hydraulic furlers. There is also a Selden Carbon Fiber Whisker Pole, and a Selden boom vang/preventer.
