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?

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.

|SloopJonB||I believe that configuration is called a Proa. That one almost looks like you have to dismount the outrigger and change it to the other side on every tack.|
