One nice thing about taking kids out with the trampolines is the weight allocation. Notice the leward ama isn't burying at all, and the sail isn't reefed. It was a pretty windy and especially gusty weekend, and I didn't need to reef at all. And, the boat feels much more stable.

Reminds me of when I was a kid, probably the most relaxing sleep he will have and it will always be remembered. :D

Any faster or more chop and you'll need to build a sprayskirt to add. Nice video!

He is actually awake looking over the back watching the water go by (not that he didn't do some serious sleeping on the AI this weekend).

He also likes to just with his feet over the back...

Here I could have used a kid on the windward trampoline and a sprayskirt.

Now THAT'S what the sprayskirt was designed for!

Another nice video.

With two on board it's a little slower going, but still 6-7mph in a 8mph type day (12-16mph winds).
