18' Herreshoff Scout Rigging
« on: August 01, 2014, 07:00:26 PM »
I have an 18' Herreshoff Scout and was wondering about the rigging and the masts.
Do the masts move back and fourth the seems to be at last one inch of space around where it enters the deck. Also the booms are both low do  the move up  or is it necessary to duck when coming about. Any rigging help would be appreciated.

I'm in the middle of restoring a Herreshoff Scout myself. No, the masts should not be free to move in the deck sockets. Once stepped, you need to secure them further with teak wedges or something similar.

The booms are that low by design. You'll have to watch your head!

Hope this helps.
