looking forward to teaching the kids/newcomers on the Bravo, now need to figure out how to get it up to the lake along with the 16. Anyone else have the same combo on a single trailer? Would the Bravo fit better underneath the 16, or can it just rest while tied down on the trampoline frame, maybe with some cushioning under the contact points?

I've towed my H16 with Bravo sitting on top many times now. Great fun combination for the family whilst camping. Foam blocks work nicely and somebody to help get the Bravo on/off is nice too.

thanks Matt, that's perfect, exactly what I needed to see. Nice to know it works well.

If that was the Bravo for sale in Cool, that was a SCREAMING deal. I was tempted at that price, even though I have no earthly reason to own a Bravo.

Regardless, sail it in good fun!

That's the one, I had been looking for many months, wanted to get one for my kids to learn on before summertime. It was a great deal too, was afraid it would already be gone when I called a couple hours after it was posted to say I'd take it.

I've sailed H16, H17 and H18 - still owning H16/H18 but the Bravo still has a place in my heart. You can load it up with all the family or like my recent camping trip where for 3 days straight we experienced 20kt winds. Not much fun on the H16 solo so I took the Bravo out daily and had a ball!

Brian I should add the Bravo sits well but extend your jib carts out as far as they go.
