I am about to start building a Sail Rig for my Redfish designed kayak and had a couple of questions about the sail plan. There is someone in my area selling a Klepper S4 rig for a good price and was wondering if any here thought it would work well with the CLC outrigger design.
I like the idea of having a jib and a main and really like the idea of being able to reef/ raise and lower the sails while on the water, both features are missing on the CLC specified sail plan. Also, I do not mind the extra time it would take to set up the klepper rig, which uses a forestay and two shrouds . I believe the the S4 sails have a combined area of 54 sqft.
looking forward to everyone's ideas.
