    Hi. The title says it all. Looking to build a junk rigged cruising tri. It would be nice if there were specific plans to follow, so I don't need to worry about designing the junk rig into a tri hull myself, but if I have to, I'm sure there's plenty of advice available.

    Thanks to anyone who knows of the availability of such plans.

    Stozi, I can't help you with the tri, but there's a clever Frenchman named Bertrand Fercot who built a Wharram Tiki30 cat and equipped it with a variant of the junk rig called a swing rig. He put a mast in each hull and sailed it across the Atlantic, and is now building a larger version of the boat using the Tiki 46 as the platform.
