A full size junk rig on a proa.

    Hi all, 

    Well the full size model works. So before I start stitching up the real thing, I would like to hear of anything I may have missed.... can anybody share some experience and tell me if I got something wrong.

    How about 6% camber? I need experienced opinions please, Multihulls are fast and they generate a strong apparent wind, too much camber may be a problem.... But I'm not sure, anybody know anything? So thinking of 6% for the bottom 3 panels, 3% for the fourth panel (from the bottom up) and top panel totally flat, no camber.

    The link below shows the boat with the full size rig on it.


    Any help will be of value.
