you light weights make me sick
at 100+ kilos i would need a sheet of plywood to try and plane in 6 knots :-)
i am happy to get going with my MS TR-4 10-oh and Fanatic Cat longboard in 8 knots
planing does not happen until after 10 or 12 knots and then i can already go to the MS-2 8-oh.
By that time you lightweights are FLYING !!
i gotta lose weight !!!
and ...mcross you confirm what i said - if a used sail, mast, etc cost $1500 , with the new board - we are over $3000
