Selene Voyager - Mast / Sails??
We are reasonably firmly headed toward an order for a Helmsman 38E, but the aft cabin idea has caught my wife's eye. So I am at least doing a light kicking-of-the-tires on the Selene 38.
A big downside in what I see is the mast and boom. I just don't see much utility in it, and all of the mast stays are just in the way. Handling the dingy can be better done via a normal davit crane.
What am I missing? I just don't see much utility in a staysail. Am I wrong?
Are any of these custom made without the mast?
Other comments welcomed as well.
For use on the east coast, by the way.
Thanks in advance.
