Robert Biegler: Gunter-junk hybrid

Responding to dustman's thread "Critique my sail design", I proposed a modification to his wishbone battens, or replacement by flipping battens that are pretty much Bierig Camber Spars. The resulting sail could use the planform of Phil Bolger's Chinese gaffer, or perhaps a kind of gunter rig, so that only one halyard is needed. I suggest a three-part halyard, leading the last part once around the mast and back to pull the top of the yard to the mast.
