    I hope you have some high performance dinghy experience under your belt and yes, you'll get wet.

    I have sailed a few little "toys that can kill you" as my wife would say... always seem to gravitate to that kind of toy :) I have unfortunately neglected to take good build pics...but I will take a few and post them here this weekend.

    With the step up rigs, you should be able to get by. What boats are you experienced with, that compare?
