I recently launched a six hour canoe with a lateen sale based on
the aca rig. The sail worked very well but keep in mind that the
gaff is over 11ft. long which is a little troublsome if you are
trying to stow it while underway. The sale was fabricated out of
ripstop nylon from the local fabric store on a houshold sewing
machine. We used the spar dimesions from one of the aca web sites
and layed out the sail backwards from there. Although the six hour
canoe is not a Bolger design it is very simmilar in construction. I
just recieved the plans for the pirogue and plan to build one in July.
I like the sound of
