    Is there a diagram of how to rigg your basic sailing canoe? Something where I could follow the lines and standing rigging. I mean just a simple sprit sail, lee boards and rudder. Yes , sorry meant lateen

    The basics for lateens, but without going deeply into the reasons that things are done this way. Stolen from some book, but it's OK as I know the author quite well.
