What boat (s) are you building or do you own?
I built a tiki 21 in India 14 years ago to a good standard, still very good today. Now I am planning to set it up with two junk rig sails, one on each hull. Any advice welcome.
I built the junk rig... is this the first Tiki 21 rigged as a Schooner with Junk sails?? See my photos anyway!

About me or us?
From the Uk but living and working in S Asia for past 20 years.
Looking to?
Set up junk rig on my Tiki 21.
Thought of doing it as a schooner set up, like the vietnamese fishing boats - four shrouds per mast. This would use existing mast on x-beam and a bamboo mast on forwd x-beam, each with four shouds. But the shrouds mean that the JR is not able to swing fully out on either sail. So maybe better to go a mast in each hull, each with the same size junk sail. Any idea on best position of masts? And max sail areas?
