Sailrig Assembly
The SPY-10 sailrig attaches to the FAP-16 cross sections with three 1/4" bolts per aka. Assembly takes only a few minutes. The three aka sections assemble with 1/4" bolts.

This folding sailrig should add another dimension to the already versatile FAP-16 folding kayak. The uses for HDPE seem endless....

Many Thanks To -

Mark Balogh of "Balogh Sail Designs", who determined the proper mast/aka location http://www.baloghsaildesigns.com

Tony Niilus, who provided much needed sailrig design input. http://www.geocities.com/niilus

Paul Ernst, whose vision of a folding sailrig got me started on this project. He is the first builder to complete one of my kayak designs (FAP-16), and is currently working on his second.

Hendrik Maroske, whose kindness and hard work, have made it possible for me to display my designs on this great folding kayak site.
