That's quite a neat idea, I just watched your shunting video. I may be undertaking a very similar build soon. How is the foot of your mast seated, I noticed it was outboard of the hull, on some kind of shelf?

Thanx, he is a perfect proa, real fun to sail. Now converting him into a micro cruiser, wanna throw him on my car and go exploring....
