Twistle Rig

I have seen a picture in one of my books of the rig. I believe it was just two jibs that were poled out in opposite directions of each other with some special pole arrangement that put the tack forward of the bow. The two sails form a V shape that dampens rocking and tends to steer itself down wind.
