I don't know if anyone has rigged one as a Cat Yawl, I would think that
it would tend to take away the simplicity of the boat. Plus, at 15ft,
adding another sail to tend...
I have to admit though, I like the idea of the mizzen holding the boat
into the wind while you mess with the main... And I guess the Micro is a
cat yawl at around the same length.
BTW, the AF2 is going together very nice and quick. I picked it because
it was the most boat I could get for the time and money invested. The
same applies to the AF3, and if I didn't have a hankering to build the
prototype, and didn't need to carry more than a couple of passengers, I
would have seriously considered the AF3.
