I’m interested Pete. Until I got into the larger air I felt like wings were “sissy” but now realize that I would be able to get some ballast out toward the windward when trapping would mean having my feet washed off the side of the boat, leading to a certain capsize.
Also, after a capsize, the boat wouldn’t be able to be blown away from me, if it had a trampoline on the wings.
In DanTnz’s link, (http://www.hobie-cat.net/download/catalogue/gb/wings.pdf
) there was a third option which wasn’t pictured. 3. Classic Wings
Similar to the Hobie 18 Magnum wings with near armchair
comfort, sitting high and dry or trapezing near outer space !
Wings are bolted onto the crossbars and can be easily
removed or folded up and out of the way. Maximum beam
120cm (48"), weight of kit 26.2kg (57.64lbs).
I’m wondering if the “bolted on to cross bars” could be modified to work our boats?
