Drop in Outriggers – photo and comments from the Philippines

Finally after many years of selling the plan I have a photo of a boat with the outriggers from the drop-in outrigger plan. Every part of the outrigger is very light. The first one we built had each component under 10lbs. It can make a canoe or kayak into a killer sailing boat.
