Best business model ever!
Its actually second to Barnum & Bailey selling their animal manure as exotic fertilizer instead of having to pay dump fees. But still worthy.
Don't build a square raft.
Give it a rear 'oar'. Call it a rudder on a sweep boat. That'll make it all better.
Don't look down on those poles as important equipment.
Set up with a path along either side to move on while working with the poles. Standing in one spot to power with a pole will be frustrating.
Better to use a tarp for a sail.
Poles could be part of the rigging for both the tarp on land, tarp over A-Frame on the boat or spinnaker on water.
Have you considered a water sock anchor for current assist against the wind?
