by William D. Jackson

Two plywood panels sandwiching a bare minimum of inner framing make up the unusual constructipn of this demon midget sailer. Also out of the ordinary for today’s sailing craft, though the type goes back about 1500 years, is its sailing rig—the lug rig—which is better suited to a small craft such as "Sea Flea" then the more usual Marconi rig. The Marconi rig would require a taller mast with many stays and spreadera; the lug rig utilizes short, easily dismantled spars that can be carried atop an auto as conveniently as the boat itself.
