Is the sail rig worth it?
Posted by Mark Ott on Feb 17, 2005
I am nearing the end of the construction of my West River 180 and I am thinking about building the sail rig to attach to it.
I want to hear someone who has put one on (any design really) and thinks that is a) fun, and b) goes faster than shear paddling. I don't want to put in a sail if I am only going to go 10% faster than me paddling.
I figure with the streamlined shape and length the craft can go fast, but I am leary.
