An A.I. that weighs less than 50kgs (fully rigged) and has a proper planing-hull...

While we're dreaming...
- Lighten the Outback by 5-10 lbs (pipe dream, I know)
- Give it the same bow shape as the 2015 Sport to cut down on hull slap (totally do-able!!!)
- Dedicated mounting spots for H-rails (goes against my desire for lighter craft, but imagine how useful that would be!)
- shut up and take my money!

Jcanracer...Yes, you are correct...I have a trailer for transport and storage.....If you have the storage space or frequent an area where trailer launching is available, it is really nice!

I've nothing against it. In fact, one of these years when I get my Adventure Island, I'll go with a trailer for that!
