    The LaShunk, our Lateen rigged Sunting Junk, is how we hope Proas can become a bit easier to use........
    This Sail Shunts, so it moves from bow to bow when the proa changes direction, It all works, but what will happen once I launch??? I think it will still work!

    Here it is:

    All d best Balkan Shipyards.

    I could never understand why people would put a more complex, less efficient rig on a craft designed for efficiency of wind propulsion.
