    Y'know how in light airs' on a mono one sits on the nose to stop ones bum dragging in the water- well does the same go for multis? Personally I've got my doubts- cos being fine up front & rocker at rear. This mainly concerns tris.

    If I get what you're saying...yes. In a cat or tri, you would move the weight forward to heep the sterns from dragging...try staying on the DWL.

    In heavy air, a multi wants to push the bow under more easily than a mono.
