Umm... they've already had sailboats that do that for a long, long time now... they're called multihulls... and they don't need no really extra complicated rig...which must suck maintenance wise...
I'm just wondering what happens when you tack/gybe that beast, and the whole mast has to go from one side to the other...if you thought a boom in an accidental gybe was dangerous, this probably puts that to shame.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
