wondering if a B14 would be a good platform for a wing rig and hydro foils

Add a couple of wires while you're at it :)

The B14 once had the choice of narrow wings and a single trap, unless memory is wrong, again. This would have been when it made a comeback after the Exocet name problem.

Just shows, hope for the false starting Icon yet.

No, you're spot on there Rupert, it was the B14E  (E for Europe).  Narrow rack and single trap - I test sailed one at a very windy QM, on a Saturday morning before heading on to Pickets Lock for the Dinghy Show with the most ridiculous grin I've ever sported!

Traps or racks? that is the question  Smile Not sure myself yet but, as of this year, I have both to chose from. Ask me next year and I'll give you a PoV from a 'late middle aged', marginally fit (and/or competent) club sailor.

Racks won out in this case, but would a twin trap arrangement have been more popular still? Personally, I doubt it, not if Aus were using wings.

Maybe racks for gusty / shifty venues.

Racks always look like an afterthought to me, except of a foiling moth of course.
