I am new to your Forum so please let me know of any rules I miss.
I have sailing background in CA, NJ and NH as well as US VI.
My boats have included: Solcat 15, NACRA 5.2, T-Gull 23 and several monohulls including: Santana 22, Banshee 13, Super Sunfish and an eight Ball land/ ice boat.
My current adventure is transition from my now sold T-Gull (health) to a Hobie Tandem Island.
I can go with a 2013 or 2015, I sailed a 2013 last summer. Needless to say the 2013 is much less by several thousand $s.
I am familiar with the new seats, ama bows and rigging. My main issue is all of the extra weight: 198 vrs 240#.
Since sail area is same, I would guess both boats are about the same in speed with normal loading and moderate wind. What are your feelings once wind closes in on 15 knots with some chop?
Thanks much in advance and by the way I am looking for a TI club to join here in Alton Bay, NH.
We get a lot of chop in Alton Bay sometimes; anyone have experience with a 2015 TI compared to a 2013 in chop?
