I'm not sure what you're asking. Do you want to add another crossbar to the boat like, between the bows or something?

Yes, it just like the H21Sc, a cross bar between the 2 hulls.

I just made it today & taken photo, but how to post it here? I tried the "IMG" button but it seems not very useful, could anyone please advise me how to do this, thanks!

You need to upload the picture to a server on the internet. If you don't have one, you can email it to me and I'll put it up for you. :)

I suppose you could do something like that. At the minimum you could just epoxy in a length of PVC pipe, but you'd probably want to do something a little more sturdy if you decided to make this modification.

ONE DESIGN ? I would keep a eye on the bow anchors and the hull around them maybe added stress :?: :idea: Too quote some one else on this forum welcome to hobie class X.

Where do you sail I've been to Hong Kong a few times Kaloon, Wang Chi of course. always enjoyed the Bull and Bear 8)
