With a simple boom, would you lose the outhaul and rotator adjustments?
(does a smaller boom have the strength to handle those stresses?)
As I recall, the Tiger does not have an outhaul....someone please confirm.
In terms of the daggers, we have a shop here in Ottawa that specializes in building and repair of foils....
Competition Composites Inc....
they are building the centreboards and rudders for the new Gunboat 55.
Earlier this year, I thought of routering out a slot in an existing H18 dagger,
and epoxying in a Tiger dagger inside that slot.
Deeper board, more lift etc.
Better sailors than I pointed out that the skill (or lack of skill) of the skipper is far more meaningful than a touch of extra lift.
Doesn't mean I haven't stopped thinking about it.
Right now, I'm focusing on the 'lack of skill' bit....ha ha...
