Has anyone made a canoe sailing rig?

Hello Folks
I have started making some parts for a sailing rig and just wondered if anyone else has done this what design they used and how they got on particularly with sailing which is an unknown area to me. :thinking

I am working from Todd Bradshaws excellent book "Canoe Rig the Essence and the Art" and have made a hollow mast and am currently making a pair of Morris style lee boards.I put a fill coat of resin on them today.
