Though not really a woodworking project of the quality shown on this website. I figured I’d jump in and show you the first canoe sailing rig I made.
The boy and I are on Forked Lake in the Adirondacks and hoping to ride some wind. We got her up to 6.8 mph (by GPS) on Forked Lk but the wind was not kind to us on Long Lake. I am the Pirate and quite naturally the Captain. Boy did not want to bring a bandana so as to complete the pirate motif.
The rig was burned for firewood at the end of Long Lake so as not to have to hump her over the Raquette River Falls Carry.
We improved on her later with another rig.
