    Could a steadying sail be used for propulsion?

    Say like in a catamaran normally engine powered? Just curious.

    Could you perhaps even tack in a light wind or would you need daggers? I have beaching keels, but only draft 18".

    Sorry to hijack. I am just wondering.

    Pm me or keep it simple on reply. Thanks.
