Probably the biggest problem with the plan is that sailors tend to go with traditional over modern when they can. New sail idea's are particularly hard to sell. A dacron fore and aft rigged boat is what most sailors are used to and are uncomfortable even thinking about anything else. If anything they would want to go with something even more traditional even if it is less practical. Although if anyone buyer would be willing to experiment it would be a catamaran sailor.

I do agree that there could be a niche market for certain buyer's out there.
