Errr...NO...excuse me for shouting...just to many reasons, one
that comes to mind if able to deploy from a sailboat is the picture a vane, referred to a a bird in the fishing
airborne with such force that it might...kill someone...put a hole
in the side of vessel...take out some standing rigging
or the mast
...but you probably won't have to worry about any of those
hazards because any booms capable of deploying birds would
the boat and keep her there after the first knockdown
caused by said booms.
Sorry for tone of post...I truly like thinking which is outside the box...but could we start with some thing with a little less hazardous..say like...otterboards at least they might just slow you down!
