    i wanted to reply to gonewalkabout regarding brians concept but only with an a-mast.... i thought this was the original question... ;)
    ( http://runningtideyachts.com/sail/ )

    could it be possible that you just mount the boom on deck like in a configuration like this:
    just not only mount the boom low on the mast but completely on deck?
    the mainsheet-mastrunners will have to be fixed to the intersections of the A-mast.... should work - i think...

    btw yipster:
    nice concept of yours... although i am not a very big fan of multihulls... ;)
