All you retired folk have a lot to answer for! Inspiring me!
Got me an alloy pole for mainmast (Free)
Fibreglass rod for a twisty top (Free)
One barely used windsurf sail for high winds. (£10 Poor bloke I bought it from was giving up windsurfing after 20 years and seemed a bit down. He'd lost his agility)
The Hobie sail is actually quite big, I will remove the top where the Yellow batten is resting and move the end cap down. Initially it will not be furling.
Pictures of final result coming soon. Should look something like this...maybe..maybe not. Any design advice, feel free to contributehttp://youtu.be/2bWCULJRmwQ
