 Looks to be the safest too!   What is the name for this person's job...Mizzen Trimmer?  I notice that most of the boats delegate this to a lighter type person, usually female...how does she get out there and does she stay there all day?

Subject: Re: Stus-List [EXTERNAL] Re: Log Canoe Race Photos    Most of the canoes still have most of their wood in the hulls, some have been sheathed in fiberglass, but they still flex. (there is often a bailer person keeping them dry). The one I was on leaked between some of the logs. Very high maintenance. They have a handicap system, which uses the length, width at certain points, and so forth. Sail area is not counted, that is up to the braveness of the owner and crew. The number 9 boat in Joe’s pictures is a steady winner – the family which owns it has two others as well. There is no way they are casual – as there is only a centerboard (about 8 feet deep, pivoting, with a cord of two feet or so – no ballast in them), the hiking boards as shown (usually more of them – from two to four) are the ballast with crew scrambling out to steady the boats and then scrambling down, taking the boards out from under the gunwale and sliding them to the other side when they change course.    Most of them are not steady enough to stay upright when the masts are up (spruce, hollow, works of art) without having the boards laying across them. The masts are raised by hand – generally about a dozen people hauling them up – pivoting on the mast step. They are tender and fast! When they tip over, they must be disassembled and taken to shore or a dock and then reassembled for the next race.    Awesome to watch and exciting to race upon.    Gary       From: Richard Bush [mailto:bushmark4 at aol.com]

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Re: Stus-List Log Canoe Race Photos    Joe; fascinating photos...thank you ro sharing these; we certainly have nothing remotely close to that kind of racing around here...; are these boats used just for racing or are they used  for casual sailing etc.; They look to be high maintenance!  How are the races scored?      Richard s/v Bushmark4: 1985 C&C 37 CB: Ohio River, Mile 584.4    Richard N.
