Wind has always made controlling my boat an issue, as I am sure probably with most of you. How about any of you guys that might have some comments on boat control in the wind chime in. Maybe some of you have some pointers the rest of us haven't thought of.
I was always wondering if a wind catcher could be placed in the front of the boat. Perhaps a small flag/ sail placed in the front sail mount. This could be made adjustable by unrolling varying amounts of sail free of the mast. Keep adjusting until the drag equals that of the operator & cooler in the rear, creating a more balanced PA. Probably easier said than done, but i would think that it would help. Also, i would find something higher that does'nt block your vision to the front. Just some thoughts!
