... You guys may prove to be heavy air freaks, but work your way up to it.
You should definitely seal the mast before using it. ...
Not much choice on the Heavy-Air thing ; Lake Mohave
can blow 13 to 30mph on any given day and the cycles may
occur 5 to 7 times a day. When i kite board that lake i use
equipment that can handle the Full spread.
Sailing there , Ya
must be ready to back the power down within a 3-5min warning,
and your Always looking up-wind for the changes.
YES -- it's a challenge & i Love it !!!
As a converted Mono-Huller and sailing instructor, i can de-power a
40ft Yawl in under
5min , while in irons during a typical tack, (with a properly trained crew) !
This Ain't a mono-hull , and
any links you could send me on a "How-TO" for sealing
the Mast would be Greatly appreciated ; i take it, if it's properly
done then the Mast Float isn't necessary ?
