Congratulations to Sally Feeney, Cos Cob, CT, who correctly answered last week’s question about “Pig sticks.” “A pig stick, is an old fashion device for hoisting a burgee or pennant to the masthead of a sailboat. My father had one on his Bristol 38. It is made with two long overlapping dowels attached with the ability to swivel. The top one carries the burgee and the bottom one gets the halyard. This allows the burgee to fly above the masthead and swivel in the wind. These days, with all of the antennas and instruments at the masthead, pig sticks don’t work so well, in my opinion.”
