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! Please consider subscribing to keep updated on my future projects.

Grayson, this is AWESOME. YOU are awesome. Love that you are documenting all of the steps you are taking to build it all. By the way, that sail is HOT.
Great job! I like to look at what others have done. My homemade sail is a bit different, but it works well. I’d appreciate your comments, you can see it here https://wackypup.blogspot.com/2018/01/how-to-sew-your-own-kayak-sail-for-any.html
