Sail rigs

I'm about to buy a set of plans for a Minuet 15.
Has anyone considered a using a Balanced Lug Rig rather than the rig in the plans?
I am going down this path for ease of set up, economics and simplicity.
Cheers Kevin

Kevin,

I'm not familiar with the Minuet but in general if you get the size and center of area of the sail rig to match the plan spec you should be ok...

Check out this great thread by Pedro and parsj1957 for sail geometry calcs:
