I'd see Jack Sammons rig his Hobbie 14 Turbo under the Blue Herron Bridge on blustery days and go blowing out towards the inlet.
Actually, Jack was one of those who bought my jib kit. Davy Rodgers, Jack and I started a "Super 14" class and sailed at the NAMSA Mid Winters at MYC that way in 1973. We also had a trapeze. This was the fore runner of the Turbo that came out about 1977, I think.
I wonder if you saw jack with my jib?
We found the trapeze improved the perforance more than the jib. Upwind, the jib didn't help much. On a reach it did.
In retrospect, the full battens were a mistake on both the 16 and our Super 14.
