yes but it's a very hard job to make a very good boat because if it was easy there would be one on the market at the moment

i dont think all these comprimise boats are very good. like the pico, feva, vago etc... they are all for both single and doulble handers. there should either be a singlehander or a double hander, but not both!

Hmm yeah that would be a good idea but then you can't sail it in bigger winds really because you are meant to be able to sail a Vago single handed but i dont think many juniors would keep that  up single handed in a F5+

Not if it's a singlehander - read the post again.

Surely a RS 500 would have to compete with a 29er, ISO, 4000 range 2 man single trapeze!!

i think it is cos the manufactures think if it is cheap teenages will buy it and they wont cos teenages wont a cool fast boat not a cheap slow one.

why do all the manufacturagers think that a teenager doublehander has to be ROTO-moulded?

Originally posted by redback

I have encountered stalling in 2 very different types of boat. 1. the Laser where it is possible to stall the foil by using a vigorous roll tack and not let the main out enough, and 2. the RS800 where in lightish winds if you oversheet the main the foil gives up and the boat slows very noticeably - it feels like you've just hit a muddy bottom.

This is not necessarily anything to do with laminar flow vs. turbulent flow sections though - the laser dagger board is NOT a laminar flow section.  What you describe for the laser is a case of the foil operating at too high an angle of attack so it stalls.

The Tasar and Laser 2 both have laminar flow sections and personally speaking I haven't found them too thin to stand on...
