RE: How to avoid "spin outs"?
If you look through the archives on the forums here, on each specific tuning option, I'm sure you would discover a wealth of information, but I think you are correct.
No one has "compiled" all the suggestions, and then gone out on the water and changed them one at a time (maybe with a training partner
to get some realtime change vs no change data) to determine what each change does, and how it affects the overall physics and balance.
It's something I've wanted to do, but to do it right I need alot better graphics skills as I think animations may be the best way to illustrate
the physics. I'm working in that direction with an online book and some other ideas.
As far as the 20 knot clause, I'm heading to the west coast of Florida tomorrow morning, so I'll be driving into the gale up the island and hoping to have it push all 7.5 tons over to and down I-95 to FL.
