I had a wonderful time with Susan and Howard in Julian this weekend. So close and yet a completely different world.
GRENDEL’s sailplan differs from stock Moore 24s in other ways too.
She is a masthead rig. Stock Moores are fractional. For non-sailors that means that the stay on which the jib is set does not go all the way to the masthead.
And GRENDEL’s mainsail has a luff of 22’10”, where as far as I can tell GANNET’s is 25’. The foot of the mainsails on both boats are about 9.5’.
I am not sure where Glenn keeps GRENDEL. It would be interesting to see her photographed beside a stock Moore.
GRENDEL is an historic boat and, as I have said, Glenn has beautifully restored her.
I thank him for taking the measurements.
