Interesting those "line stabilized" or "line-located/triangulated" ama-aka connections. Sufficiently thought out, they seem to form a fail-safe mount in that they would be flexible but simply fixable in failure. With today's synthetic line, they could be close to bombproof. Also, for a home-design, when you are experimenting with ama sinkage and strut height, etc., you could easily start with an over-long ama strut and cut it down (and re-lash the stabilizer lines) in iterations until you got the perfect aka height, or even have adjustable height for different loads.
the canard wings look cool
