    Re: Outrigger vs. Single-hull sailing canoes

    Re: Outrigger vs. Single-hull sailing canoes

    I thought it might be a good time to recap, based on these discussions, as it relates to the original question. At risk of oversimplifying, here's my comparison:

    Re: Outrigger vs. Single-hull sailing canoes

    Those look good. I never thought of putting it amidships like that. I was more picturing putting the wheels at one end and lifting the other end. I guess it depends how flat the terrain is. Then...

    Re: Outrigger vs. Single-hull sailing canoes

    The hinged iakos on the red canoe are particularly interesting to me. Again, anything that cuts down on setup time is a huge plus. I'm guessing you could employ the same system for a...

    Re: Outrigger vs. Single-hull sailing canoes

    Thanks for this bit of insight. The boat's speed is not a critical issue for me (not that I'm looking for it to be slow). Mostly, I think I want it to be relatively uncomplicated, as life experience...

    Outrigger vs. Single-hull sailing canoes

    I have been planning to build a sailing canoe for awhile now. The problem is, I keep second-guessing which overall type to go with: a Polynesian style outrigger canoe (ex. Ulua, Wa’apa), or a...
