Self righting difficulties may eliminate the H16 from my options to find a fast, single-handed boat for EC. A trimaran built with H16 hulls (or some other cat hulls) as amas might work. But the Tridarka Raider taught me that lighter is better.
The Weta is fun, but a little too frisky for distance racing. Plus, their strength leaves a little to be desired from what I've hear.
The Hobie AI is wonderfully easy. But I don't like the idea of sitting in a puddle for more than a couple hours at a time.
You creative guys with the custom boats are too cool. But I'll be too old to sail by the time I get one built.
I found out about the Warren Light Craft boat, Little Wing 15.5 last night. http://www.warrenlightcraft.com/specs15sail.html. Boy, carbon fiber and 68 lbs! I love that. Don't love spending $9,000 much. But, at least, I'd also have a nice kayak for those windless days in Colorado.
Looks like a boat that should have been used for an EC, but I haven't seen one in the last few years. Anybody have any opinions to share on it?
(Sure, also share your opinions on my opinionated views above, if you want!)
