Salty... if you only had 3,000euro and saw the Corribee21 for 1,500euro... the cheapest open sea capable Tiki at the time was 4,500euros.. what would YOU do..

HeEre's a Wharram with chorded junk sails his 3rd rendition. He has since sold this boat and is completing a Tiki 46 with the same rig. I can't find the photo butthere is a shot of one of these sails looking up from the weather side of the foot. The sail shape looks a lot like the wing sail on the BMW/Oracle trimaran.

Errr...offer 1400 for the Tiki? *heh

Salty is all confused now from all these new options. He may have to go look at Fisher 30's for a while to calm his nerves.

The friend who became disillusioned with the junk, after sailing the Contessa? He has a Gazzelle with a junk rig.

When your jet plane lands , look out the window and see that little flap in the wing flip up. It is there to "ELIMINATE" any possible lift. Your mast on the lee side of the junk sail does the same thing , very effectively.
