    Default Outriggers, sails etc

    I have a 16ft Apache and would like to convert it for sailing. I don't think the narrow beam of the Apache would give enough stabilty - anybody any experience of outriggers. Anybody know of plans for outriggers, rudder, dagger board, rigging, sails etc?? This would be a self build project - I have a pretty well equipped workshop. All comments and advice welcome.

    Thanks

    Joe

    Have you asked on the Sailing Canoes Yahoo group?

    Not sure what the meets are like, but I also noticed that the Open Canoe Sailing Group is scheduled to be getting together at Windermere on 24th/25th October: might be a chance to talk to other canoe sailers.
