Sail your yak? Chat about it here.
I will be able to revisit designing my own with a bit more of an idea of what I am doing.

Could you run a halyard from the top to the bottom of the mast and connect the boom to that instead of using the "snotter"? You could then maybe partially furl the sail by just adjusting the length of the cord at the trailing corner?
How do you think the efficiency of this sail would compare to a similarly sized Hobie sail with no boom? I expect it should be more efficient? And I take it there's no hassle sailing into the wind?
Keep up the good work!
