Earlier I raised some questions on the use of The Omer Wing Sail on multihulls. I send the same questions to Mr. Ilan Gonen from the co. Mr. Gonen. His answers can be read here under should anybody have the interest:
You cant compare wharram to harryproa. Wharram are a "timeless"
I own a Tiki21, and it's the perfect rugged tool for exploring the
thight and shallows, in the scandinavian archipelagos.
A harry type proadesign, built on the wharram plywood construction
would be very interesting for the homebuilder.
I agree that the future of kites will be very interesting. I'm into
all sorts of kitesailing, mostly on snow. I would really like to try
an OutLeader on our Tiki..
