Hello everyone! This is my inaugural post on here. I have ben lurking around for the past several months and have finally come to a point where I have some questions I have not found elsewhere.
I am planing on buildinga Laker 13 kayak and am hoping to turn it into a small sailing trimaran to explore some of the coastal areas south of Tampa, Fl. I have worked out on paper the brackets I will instal on the bulkheads that will come up through the deck that I will attach the outrigger arms to.
The pontoons will take a deeper V profile that will hopefully minimize the use of a lee board. Where would be a good place to look for plans for these? Storage for a small tent and some other supplies inside of them would be great as well.
The proposed rig on this will be a balanced lug sail. I am wondering what size I should be looking at for mast height and square footage. What type of additional reinforcing should be done at the mast step for this?
Thank you for any help you can offer with this.
