If you're feeling experimental try putting a TOY sliding seat on a laser.

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

I dunno, I reckon that massive kite will be a giggle, but if it doesn't have one i think TT is spot on

Aren't they inclined to nose dive? Are they sticky slow in light and with your waves you not being heavy enough to hold it up, both sideways & fore n aft when it gets interesting? I guess the kite helps though.

Well that's what always put me off them until now, the thought of the lee hull induced endo. Didn't know they were sticky in light weather although that could be the sail it's a bit naff.

Mate of mine had one. He's about 65-70kg... said it was sh*t below a force 4. He's an optimistic bugger, always smiling type. Definitely not a grade 1 boat snob, so given that, it must be REALLY sh*t for folks like us with less tolerance.

I wish... just sold the nicest boat I ever owned due to lack of crew.
