    Might work for even larger catamarans that don't want to go bi-plane and have more height to work with (cabin height as well).

    A similar system is used for the Tiwal, an inflatable sailing boat, in a more industrial configuration.

    These two YouTube clips show a very unusual mast stepping arrangement - a framework not unlike the one sometimes used to hold up Christmas trees in my youth - which might be a useful addition to the range of possibilities for small junk rig boats.  Might solve some problems for those who can’t get the mast stepping needs of a JR to work with the shape of their boat?  I have no other information than what is in the videos
