Why do you not know if you will add them?
Don't say weight, cause my gut weighs more than my wings.
Cost is a big issue (I'd rather have new sails), as is weight capaciity on the wings, 450 lbs. I'm 280 crew is 210. If a set of SX wings came up for a decent price, I'd probably jump on them and then look like a liar, if I could get the mast as solid solid stick, I might be interested in a full up SX rig on mine. I have a redline boat, I put all of the reinforcements in for the beam junctions, finishing up a bottom job (fiberglass tape and epoxy graphite), and gonna paint. Once all that is done, sails, and then maybe wings.
Bah650, sorry for the hijack, I've salied 14s, 16s, and 18. My dad had a 16, when I came along (May '76) he traded the 16 for a 14 (March '76). I learned to sail the 14, we got a 16, it was stolen and an 18 came available. Since sailing the 18, I've gone back and sailed the other cats, and found them too weight sensitive. I'd vote 18. Is it the absolute best cat out there? Maybe not. Is it the best I've ever owned/sailed? You bet.
