Outlaw Storm Sail Comment

What Outlaw really needs instead of the upside down high aspect storm sail 2.0 is a Cheap Skate nice low aspect long boom Sunfish rig carried high enough to clear the roll bar, not much higher really that the over the sitting skippers head rig of the Cheap Skate. The magic of the Lateen rig would solve the center of effort steering problem, especially in heavy air when a deep luff is carried in the forward part of the sail moving side and forward thrust well aft. As a bonus the hiking moment would be reduced, probably to never hike at all.
