Greetings and sail rig question

Post by AlaskaWalter »

Hi all. I'm in Anchorage, Alaska and I am interested in making a catamaran of my two kayaks. Anyone have suggested sail rigs? I have a 12 foot lapstrake boat rigged with a sprit sail. It works well and I'm wondering about sizing it for twin 18 foot kayaks.

There's a great book in the "books and video" section on the left, just below "sailing kayaks".

It's called "Canoe Rig the Essence and the Art : Sailpower for Antique and Traditional Canoes" by Todd Bradshaw.

It's of interest for any small boat rigs

Well there is the VARIO CAT by Klepper made for joining two Aerius 2s together, but the price could put you in a league of your own.
