My homemade kayak sail is complete and I just want to thank my wonderful aunt for all her help with it! It looks absolutely beautiful. I have yet to take it for a test run but with all the forethought, I am certain it will sail wonderfully. In the last three days I also added the outriggers and some deck rigging and cleats for the sea anchor/tow rope. I will post about them in the next couple days!
Edit: The old mast step with just the mast set on a washer worked better than the tiller extension. I’ll be working on another post updating improvements I could foresee in version 2.0 of my homemade kayak sail and will link here when I am done!
