wonder if those water activated pfd systems would work?

Or would it deploy at every capsize, thereby negating the effect..?

I personally do NOT like the looks of the stock set-up
for they call the spinnaker ; looks more like an Over-sized
Drifter to me, and it's placed TO0oo far forward of the
balance point of the hull, so Ya Need a Lot of rudder.
