Well I to like to understand why stuff goes wrong, I've completely f**ked my boat up again and this time I'm struggling to work it out, but I will, eventually. As to the H2 I've recommended it to a couple of my bigger acquaintances as one to look at, which was why the conversation went the way it did. I can't comment with anything other than ironic quips, because I really have no experience, but I've followed conversations around the boat, issues with light winds early on, have watched videos, as you do, because for most of us the chance to try a boat before buying never really occurs that often.

It's understandable once having bought something or other you're going to be defensive and that's how classes also f**k things up instead of recognising an area that could do with improvement, the hoary old chestnut 'oh once you get to know how to work it', through 'time and effort' gets rolled out instead of being sensible and redesign the bloody thing.

It has always looked wrong, it's always had a way too hooky leech, bloody great fatheaded made for inland water leafy lakes thing, was always going to be horrid to a sea sailor like myself and my erstwhile damning friend.

Just make a sail for the sea and one for inland, have both, double the boats appeal.

Only don't call it a "wave" sail, call it Ocean Master, or Sea Rider and leave the old one labeled Inland Puffy Bender sail.

Did you really mean 5cm or 5mm? adding 2" to spreader length is a lot.
