    All comments are from four years ago (2015.) Wish some of the questions could be answered somehow. Really interested in this design now. Thanks, Ken

    Is this your own design? If so, could I have a look at the study plans? If no, could you tell who's design it is?

    here is one more. Too bad it is virtually impossible to take a picture of the boat sailing when you are alone. There are more pictures on www.proafile.com in the proa section.
