The latest rendition of the outrigger attachment... I had rope braces out to the bamboo pole but ended up taking them off. Tried several different paddling positions including standing up... needed a stand up paddle. I think I'm going to try a sunfish sail rig complete with the yards... may be a little big but they are cheap... lots of them around and could be easily cut down a little if needed.

I'm going to use this to continue experimenting with the crab claw rig which hopefully will be used on a pacific style proa with a shunting crab claw rig. A pacific style proa can sail in either direction but always keeps the outrigger upwind

I had a serious setback last November..... on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.... I had a fire which burnt my shop and unbelievable amount of stuff with it to the ground. I had just retired and was looking forward to spending a lot of time out there. Still recovering from that but just recently acquired a 17 ft Grumman canoe... which I plan... in the near term... to use as a test bed for proa bits and pieces.
