It would be greate if anybody can help.
There is an article in The Sea People Nº 15 about a junk rigged Hitia 17 by Pierre La Plante. With this boat called Skua he made a 750 miles cruise departing from Quebec in 1990. Also there is a picture of Skua in the book "Multihull voayaging" from T. F. Jones.
