I've been thinking about this for some years. Have the study plans...just keep hesitating, but don't know why. Love the concept and aesthetics but always wondered if she has a leeway problem? But could fit some daggerboards blades

I think the leeway can be minimised by 2 mesures: First the "extra paddles or rudders" as forseen by the designers and with slight larger mini-keels may be from 2 inch to 4 inch. How efficient this should be can only be mesured in practice. 

I'm still full engaged with my "outdoors camp" and organic farm project in the Philippines. After the construction works are done, I'll have my workshop and will start with the Amatasi. I bought the plans already.
