Re: Question about sail area
The drawings look lovely, and the sailplan appears to be well-proportioned. I would question the need and desirablility of a cutter rig in a boat this small, however. If you're likely to be sailing on smaller lakes, you're also likely to have shifty winds and have to tack frequently. Having to tack two jibs can become old quite quickly - right about the time you have to tack again before you have the second jib fully trimmed.
