    I'm interested in large cruising proa designs and have visited Jim Antrim's site and TSpeer's symetrical foil models--most interesting and helpful.

    I'm curious if anyone knows if there is a rotatable power leg on the market that could be applied to a large cruising proa design. Seems like a specialty application (read $$). With a large proa it seems you'd want to be able to motor both directions and an outboard for a cruising powerplant starts to become impractical.
