OK, Chris, a summer has now come and gone. What happened ? ( don't know I missed this thread ).
Russ, life turned seriously pear-shaped soon after I posted that and I only got to go sailing two or three times all summer, so I have yet to try it. I'm hoping to get more opportunities to get out in the boat in the next few months.
Interesting stuff, I have a TI and have always contended that the AMA's should have been designed so they sit 1 foot further out so the boat would be 12 ft wide vs the current ten ft wide. Lengthening the AKA's would also raise them a little. I wonder if the AI would also benefit from a wider stance.
Bob, what benefit do you envisage in a wider boat?
