Con Rong

Con Rong comes from my study of double ended boat designs. She is inspired by the Vietnamese Cochinchine vessels. While the Con Rong’s roots lay in traditional Vietnamese styles, she uses a classic Marconi rig, plus a suspended forward sail that can be replaced by a classic jib if you so desire.

   While researching the Vietnamese Cochinchine vessels I found much of my technical data and information in the book of the Admiral Paris, “Souvenir de Marine”. I was impressed by unusual rigging with a full suspended rig that resembles very closely the Bermuda rig. I found it to be a very advanced and efficient rig.
