Several years ago I was walking the docks in Skidegate, Haida Gwaii, where I saw a boat like my C&L 44 set up with paravanes. The attachment of the poles and control posts was to the hull at deck level and the mast was positioned over the back wall of the main cabin. There was no outward sign of reinforcing, but of course the inside may have been substantially beefed up.

Just made me think you can add paravanes to almost any design if you do your homework on stress points.
