Been on the Proa file, Outrig, etc., and have a plan of action in mind, just wanted to see if anyone on here has built, or used a sailing outrigger. I want to make it clear, this is not a Proa, as in it will tack, having a fixed rudder
is 16 feet, by 18" with a maximum depth
of 24"(meaning the distance from gunwale to keel) and has come together quickly, and rather nicely. My question is about the float...
I originally planned on making the float 10 feet by 12" by 12". Am wondering if I should make it 18 inches "deep" instead, or if maybe 12' loa
would be better...
the disclaimer here is that I'm not looking for an all out speed demon, I do want her to sail but, she's going to serve as a dinghy
, fishing/surfing canoe, as well as general sailing entertainment.
any and all thoughts are welcome, and I'll try to get some pictures up as I go along.
Thanks in advance!
