PamlicoToday is on a distinguished road
My boat is even smaller, a Dufour 30 Arpege, but I also am considering an arch, though nothing as big and fancy as the photos on YachtWorld. That looks like a lot of weight aloft. I am considering making my own of either bamboo or carbon fiber, which I would use for a small radar and wind generator and maybe a tiny solar panel. Even so, that still seems like a lot of weight and I worry about how the boat might handle in a sea? Any ideas on that or on the building materials?
