    Well, after 7 years and many failures I feel I can finally say it works better then my expectations.....

    Pacific Proa Make O'Break from Balkan shipyards "LaShunK" rigged, A Junk sail on a moving yard for shunting makes this Junk rig the closest concept to a Lateen rig. The LAteen rigged SHUnting juNK, is a concept that may be the answer for home builder PROA freaks, it's easy to shunt, easy to reef and recovers from backwinding in a way I could never imagine.......

    The full VIDEO below. Make O'Break showing off..............

    Keep Shunting, Balkan Shipyards.

    This is th most interesting use of an "A" frame mast I have seen yet. Very clever.

    Thanx Sharpii, It really materialised out of the necessity to have a mast and yard the way Lateen rigs have, I don't really consider it to be an A frame, although it is....
    7 years of messing about with Pacific Proas and Oceanic Lateens, finally came to this, It really is a pretty simple design that works exactly like the Crab Claws of the Pacific, just it's Junk rigged............

    Keep Shunting, BSY.
    all d best.
