Due to a restrictive apartment complex (where I'm interning) and no place to park a trailer at school, my plans to get my aunt's old Lido have been shot down. I'm looking at getting a cat, though I had a question about transporting them. Looking at the Wave, it appears to me that the hulls should be able to disconnect from the cross-tubes and be stored in a smaller space--which is ideal, since then I could easily store the entire boat in my apartment or in the garage at school. Is it actually possible to do this? Or should I just get a trailer? I don't mind a bit of setup time; I'm used to such things from said Lido and from flying.

Does it handle ok at high loads? I'd like to be able to bring friends out with me, but the Getaway is too big and expensive for me, at least for being in school.

Also, is a boom available for the Wave, or just the Bravo? Or is it standard and I'm just being stupid?

Is a jib worth it?

Thanks for the help!

Yep, they disassemble for just your reasons. Trailers are easier, but the boat Classic version takes about 15-20 minutes to rig including framing the hulls.

No boom (yet). The boat can handle 4 adults in lighter wind and flatter water. Great singlehanded.

My wave is stored disassembled with the hulls hanging from the ceiling of my garage. I have a high ceiling. A trailer would certainly be more convenient for weekend use but at this point I primarily use the Wave on week long vacations.

I generally sail alone or with the kids. A second adult will slow the boat down but it is still sailable, though I have never been able to fly a hull with a second adult aboard.

Ok, thanks for the input... anybody have experience with a Bravo? How does it handle with two aboard?

The Bravo can handle 2 without problem. The Wave is faster and easier to sail. The Bravo is powered up for its width. You have to hike out more.
