Re: Camper Rowboat from Angus Rowboats
Maybe the simplest downwind and reaching sail, and easy to set from a rowing boat or canoe is a small parafoil. Needs to get a fairlead forward. Could be tucked through a bite in a painter. Brian Schulz ( Cape Falcon Kayaks) used one with great success in a kayak trip down the Oregon coast.
Not sure the reason for a daggerboard if not sailing; if it is ahead of the rowing position or ahead of amidships the boat will be gripy; we have had success rowing a ducker ( pure double ender) backwards with a inch or two of daggerboard in the sailing daggerboard spot. If I did anything for trim control in a pure rowing boat I would install an adjustable skeg as seen in many seakayaks, or an after daggerboard.
