Trapeze Harnesses

I own an AMF Alcort Puffer and am wondering if i can rig a trapeze harness on it? If anyone knows anything about harnesses on small dinghy''s I''d appreciate any input/suggestions you have! Thanks

I don''t think that a Puffer would support and adult in a trapeze. It seems to me that somewhere I came across a discussion that you need something like 125 square feet of sail area to support an adult. Also a Trapeze puts a huge strain on a rig, especially one that was not designed for one.
