How Ya Going Stringy !
I like your idea to improve or make a bigger/double sail for the tandem model.
The standard sail might work well enough for the single kayak models but with the weight of two
adults and gear in our tandem oasis
the sail does not always seem to move the boat very much unless the winds are on
the verge of hurricane speeds. At this point our mast and rigging is just about to break when the wind and standard sail finally start to move the boat along a bit.
Any way I had a half baked idea after seeing your post about using two sails
that I thought Id throw out for the heck of it and it might look something like this instead
By using pvc maybe the hull would not have to be modified with a forward mast tube at all.
The main mast tube could hold two
side by side sails
mounted onto a horizontal pvc tube with another pvc mast tube placed on
either end to hold each sail.
I havent figured out any rigging or structural analysis but the sails
could be spread apart a bit and perhaps controlled in tandem by the same sheet similar to a hobie tri foiler design.
The two sails
would then be placed outboard of the hull and have some type of float/ama/aka setup attached to the ends to reduce any heeling/ tipping. The front passenger could then still pedal and paddle with both sails
out to the side etc. etc.
Anyway just a half baked idea to ponder.
Have fun down under
