What would it be like to(?):
Take two Island main hulls (without the akas/amas), attach the two hulls with two +/- 8' aluminum (telescoping?) crossbeams, use the two sail rigs (as a biplane rig), and peddle/sail with 2-4 (if Tandem) people...?!?
Would there be too much of a tendency to submarine or pitchpole the leeward hull... or could this be a fun, stable, ama-free craft? (If so, maybe Hobie needs to make that their next project!? I'd love to see a peddle/sail/paddle catamaran for 1-5 passengers!)
Just a thought.
Thanks for any feedback!
We have tried this here before - what happens in real world test is the leeward sail gets too blanketed from the windward sail, so that second sail doesn't give you any performance advantage at all. Only downwind do both sails actually get wind - so it's not a product that we would try and develop, sorry.
