The Junk Rig
The junk rig shares many of the virtues of the gaff rig. The "Junk" rig or "Chinese Lug" rig is easy to handle, very easy to reef, easy and inexpensive to build, easy to rig, has no complex hardware, requires no winches, is easy to maintain, involves very low rigging stresses, provides a low center of effort so requires less beam or depth of keel, and at least in my view, looks great!
