what kind of mast and sail is that? Seems to furl around the mast, and yet has a boom, so not a hobie mast and sail. Also, the amas seem robust. Wonder how they are made.
From looking at the facebook page he has a 'construction series of photos' and the amas look like they are foam board laminated on a center plywood piece..
