    Default A hybrid Junk rig DIY.....

    A long road of trial and error has finally come to an end!

    Pacific Proas require special rigs, shunting rigs, that move from bow to stern so the vessel can sail back which is actually ahead....... A fascinating vessel that discovered the whole Pacific Ocean. But since has become almost forgotten.................

    Meet the LaShunk our LAteen rigged SHUnting juNK on it's maiden voyage, Proa Make O'Break showing off!
    Years of experimenting with traditional proa rigs (Crab Claws) taught me that this is not the way to go......

    In the VIDEO below, the LaShunK works flawlessly, easy shunting! easy reefing and above all the easiest recovery from backwinding I have ever seen!!! That last bit by the way, just happened by mistake......

    Keep Shunting, Balkan Shipyards.

    Default Junk rigged Proa "Make O'Break" Black sea Micro Cruising....

    5 days on a lumpy and windy rough Black Sea proved the point.
    The VIDEO below shows Pacific Proa Make O'Break safely sailing fast,
    7 long years of failure, blood, sweat and tears have finally proved that success is a result of hard work and persistence..........
