plywadelko Thanks for the reactions, everyone! Especially for that link to the Nautylys site.

MedSailor, did your friend attach that outrigger to his canoe by himself, or did he buy it like that?
And I was wondering, what kind of material should an outrigger be made of? How heavy should it be compared to water?

It actually does have a sail, but you can see only a little part of it on the picture.

NO! Not true! On the port tack the flotation of the outrigger keeps the boat from capsizing. On the starboard tack the weight of the outrigger on that long lever acts as ballast and keeps the boat from capsizing.

A single outrigger rig is INCREDIBLY stable. A friend of mine had a 17' EasyRider canoe with an outrigger. We were setting and pulling crab pots under sail in 3ft of chop. At one point we BOTH stood up in his canoe in the three foot chop and switched positions on the boat.

Here is my friend in the boat I am talking about: Imagine 2 people standing in the boat in 3'chop....


The outrigger effect has to be experienced to be believed.
