Thanks Thomas

Were you able to participate ? Looks like almost all had used swing rigs. Very interesting seeing ideas from other countries.

Appreciate your post and links.

Unfortunately I was out of town for a family event.
And yes, swing rigs are very common here. They make for a lighter hull (no need for reinforcements!)
