    For what its worth :). The current owner of my old Buc-24 has hit 18 kts several times recently GPS verified , at least once single handing. Big main, small jib, probably gusting in the low twenties. He was a bit scared ;).
    I recently repaired and beefed up his dagger board, he is putting it to good use. Last winter he replaced his dagger trunk with a new one I built, I made it 2 inches wide inside so there is more room for a thicker and stronger board, and the board does not have to be tilted to install it. He can vary the board's fore and aft rake to suit the sail combo and balance the helm, particularly good in gusty conditions.
