I am considering trying to build an Elementarry to learn more about
building and proas. I have a few questions:

What is the payload capacity of the Elementarry? I am too big (300
lbs) for many small boats. Is the Elementarry suitable for me? Can I
bring my wife/daughter (only about 100 lbs each).

I am very curious about the Ballestron rig. Has that been tried on the
Elementarry? Is it part of the plans?

I am looking at the sport model, for day sailing in the chesapeake bay
(US, Maryland). Our winds run on the light side. I expect that I will
normally be sailing in 5-10 knots. Never above 15. Suitable?

I have also been reading up on the KSS construction method. Is that
what is recommended for the Elementarry? Do the plans reflect this?
