One advange of the gaff rig is that all the spars can be stowed inside the boat which makes it easy to transport. Over the years before the Bermuda rig was introduced  "carriage beams" were popular on the racing circuit and remain the best way of supporting the mast, gaff, boom and sails while the boat is being moved.
