Arhhh matey! I've got visions of a junk rig or Viking sail billowing in my mind

Something small enough to not topple a modestly back stayed trawler "mast" yet big enough to run down wind after losing the main engine, or to give an extra boost when winds are strong enough from astern. Might be a viable option with the long wind funnelling channels on BC's north coast.
