    I am going to build fully enclosed triangular prism sailboat. Does it follow a straight course or does it want to go right or left ?

    Considering your previous posts related to this, I would say it will have a straight downward course.

    Thank you for your time friend. Does it go where i want to go or does it go where it wants to go ? Can rudder work or does only wind rules ? What would be the difference from curved boat ?

    It depends. Post the design so we can see what it looks like. However, there is not much hope for it.

    It is a really bad shape for a boat. What do you need to do with the boat?

    Heed Gonzo's advice. That is a very bad design for a boat.

    Why does it have to be 2.4 m x 1.4 m, and triangle prism shaped?
    As noted above, this is a bad way to design a boat (these comments are being very polite).

    Are you looking to set some sort of sailing record with this boat?
    Re how it is 'fully enclosed', will you be inside the boat, sailing it?

    I am reminded of the Big C transatlantic challenge which will apparently happen next year, where an English lad will attempt to sail across the Atlantic in a boat that is all of 1 metre long - he has a Facebook page about his project :

    For a year or two now, this fella keeps attempting to build a small boat.

    I believe he wants to stay under radar detection so he can emigrate from one nation to another. I could be wrong.

    The concern I have is always the same; that we are unwittingly going to send him to his death in the Mediterranean in a boat made from cardboard and latex paint.

    I mean you no disrespect Mustafa. Perhaps I am wrong and you are more into small boat innovation.

    This boat would not be very seaworthy. A tiny boat should be self righting.
