This boat could be considered a tacking outrigger, a type gaining
some interest lately. Even Wharram et al are designing toward
cruising examples, they see it as kind of back to the future.
OTOH the boat could be considered an extreme example of a Harry Proa
type, in this case non-shunting. This Pacific type has the
accommodation in the windward hull, and rig etc on the lee hull, and
is gaining in standing amongst cruising proa fans.
Was PCB, out of the box, and way off in front of the pack yet again
back in 1991? Does his concept plan lead back to the future?
I still, however, am unsure of the merits of "less jagged stability
curve" for Cruising. The curve benefits claimed seem more
intuitively obvious for Singlehander
