For those that don't know the Strap-Ons well, they are like a modern plastic wayfarer with an assymetric.  So no, they are not fast, as in skiff or RS800 or whatever, but they do go quite well for their size and weight.  I changed from a L2000 and I'm doing much better, eben thought the PY is lower.

As you push your way out on the trapeze its nice to have something on the floor to push against.  The 29er has a tube or "kick bar" along the floor for this purpose.  Similarly the Laser4000 and RS800 has raised ridges in the floor moulding.  The 800 is rather nice since it also has a raised ridge at deck level just in from the gunwhale so that you can trapeze from there (sort of half trapezeing) - terrible for sitting out though, but then you'd never want to.
