Default RE: Quiver update: Retros vs Huckers for B&F

o2bnme, it sounds like the 6.6 Hucker, when rigged for 7.5 conditions, is a bit sluggish due the the increased drag from maxing out the foil's draft. I had been thinking that it may be possbile to get decent performance of 6.6 Hucker in 7.5 conditions (as well as a 5.6 Hucker in 6.5 conditions). But maybe that's a bit optimistic. Would I be better off assuming the sails can generate only about 1/2 m2 effective power than a comparable Retro across the board, even for the smaller Huckers?
