Chip, that looks like a meth lab.
Not quite but almost. I'm sure I lost a few brain cells on the project.

I prefer being closer to the center of rotation.



And I'll try to ignore Al's boat's advantages.

ha ha......maybe a handicap not an advantage. Wait untill hye gets in a heavy sea with strog winds and he will wish he no longer had that sail up there attempting to sail his boat independently of his control.
The only advantage is visability and then mostly only in calm seas that in my opinion

The Coot is a motorboat. The sails are optional and flown only when it's to my advantage/whim. Don't contemplate using sails without the engine except for get-home-after-engine-failure or to experiment.

There is no question that Mark and Jeff get as much enjoyment out of their boats as any of us here. It gives me pleasure to see people that enjoy it so much.
