Double outrigger

The Tamanu can also be rigged as a double outrigger. Foam and fiberglass amas are used to save weight.

Coming soon

This 20 ft/6 M tacking outrigger "Tamanu" is a development of the "Easy Rider" that I built in Fiji a few months ago. It is fully decked with two self-bailing footwells, has a kick-up rudder on the stern, and the sail is reefed by rotating the mast. Complete plans should be ready by Christmas.
