Funnily enough, Whilst working on ways to make the gbe easily trailerable one of the ideas I had was a long centre pod which the (carbon) main and third beams could hinge from. Would run from just ahead of the forebeam all the way to the aft beam. The area forward of the mast could be used as a launching chute for the kite, with the mouth ahead of the jib. Could also house a retractable prod.

 

I thought it would help stiffen things up a bit

Launching and retriving a kite without being able to go in front of the mast could be interesting, furlers on everything?

 

Or a snuffer. http://crew.org.nz/forum/index.php/topic/12887-single-handed-spinnaker-handling/page-2?do=findComment&comment=164116
