Yes - its now class legal in the H16 class here in NA. We offer the same one that comes standard on the Wild Cat if you are looking to upgrade. We have a couple of sticks we've used over the years on our Tiger, and Greg tried one out on his 16 this past weekend. There are several types to choose from on the market, but my favorite so far is the one from the Wild Cat!

What'd you think of the vid overall? I tried to convey 'race' with 'personality', how'd I do?

Yes I already knew that, see "Carbon fiber tillers" on earlier posts.

Not sure of the exact length but it should work on any boat that has a beam of 8'6" or less. If you have the wings the tiller is most likely too short. I'm not sure if there is a carbon tiller on the market that is long enough to work with the wings.

So what's the white stuff on the rails of Greg & John's boat?


That's something new we tried on the F18s - it is called Hydroturf and it comes in a billion colors and patterns. You can get it from Dennis at www.gobarefootboats.com - durable and inexpensive.

Jeremy - the vid is terrific! Much gratitude!
