Hello Phil,

As far as I know only 1 was ever rigged this way and it was such a disaster the owner re rigged conventionally.

Certainly no drawings exist for the rig.

Whatever you rig a Senior, it needs the later extra keel depth as per the extended bilge keel version with steel plates 6 inches deeper and the main keel extended 6 inches, then it will sail!

Unless it is the centreboard version that is, but that sails like a dinghy, needing agile crew!

The one that was junk rigged was bilge keel and not updated and was on a loser before it started!

What is the rig at the moment? The normal cutter rig?

And more importantly have you steel extended bilge keels, for if not, whatever you rig her as she will sail a bit like a paper bag!

hope this helps,
Regards,
John
