Videos Showing Details of Phoenix III Balance Lug Rig

During a recent visit from Paul Hernes (builder of the first Phoenix III) I was able to take a number of still and video shots of the details of the balance lug rig on Paul's Phoenix III.

This was my first ever attempt at video filming and editing, so please be patient with the results. However, you may find some of the clips to be worthwhile as they do show how well the boat has been developed by Paul over the years. Here they are: -


  1. Thanks for posting these videos, Ross... The walkaround has given me some good ideas and will probably mean you'll have to answer a few less emails in the coming months!

    I really like Paul's tidy downhaul arrangement. Consider it "borrowed." :)

  2. For one who's never sailed a boat with this kind of rig, your very well shot and narrated video clips, Ross, are a gift, as are Paul's well thought out details as example.
