Roger,

I'm still enjoying the Large Rio with my new 4.6 Revo for light wind free style. :)

Fin Bolts

Roger,

Thanks for the info about the fin bolts. Gary Stone said the Rio takes 85 cm bolts for the deep tuttle fin. Does that sound about what you thought?

I was thinking that I would put the...

Roger,

Thanks for comparing the Start and Rio. I will go with your opinion that the Rio would be better for all around sailing for me. I was leaning toward it already.

Roger,

Sounds like you approve of the large Rio for all around sailing.

I have looked at the Start too for light to medium wind. Do you have any thoughts comparing the Start to the Rio?
