Default RE: What Starboard for 8.5 + 10 m?

Hi Thierry
At 70-80kg, with out any doubt, the iS133 is plenty big enough to carry a 10m nicely. I mainly use a 9m on my S125 at over 105 kg on inland and open sea, and it feels just right (feels like the S125 would take a 10m).

Not sure what your wind minimuim is, but I think the early planning advatage would just about go to the iS145, and not because of its extra width, but because of its bigger fin. With its faster release rails, the iS133 would not be embarassed by the iS145 in the early planning stakes. With an energetic technic, I dont think you would need much more than 2 or 3 knots difference in wind strength to get going between both models.

Cheers
