Block Head


This is one of our strangest offerings, Yes the drawing is crude, the concept bizarre, but we like the general weiedness of the thing. Its designer , Jude Fernandez offers this:

The design requires a freestanding, rotating, in furling type mast. The upper and lower booms are fastened to the mast so that their movement about the vertical axis is concurrent with the mast. As the upper and lower boom are constrained to move in the same plane, a totally rectangular or trapezoid sail planform can be maintained without twist distortion. If anyone out there is cashed up and wants to build one or more of these things, then email me.
