The wishbone rig isn't in the running for me, and the Bal. is in some
ways simpler - once you have the carbon tube everything else come from
Home Depot, so to speak. This one has at least one horizontal at the
toip that is complex and carbon. On the other hand I make my own
sailsm and the square sail is far easier, nore efficient, and more
versatile. I'm not convinced this sail can be operated through 180
degress without a Ballestron boom of it's own, which would start to be
a little messy. On a proa/cat type thing Rob used to mess with or on a
podcat, this could be very nice.
