I have a H17 Sport and am thinking of getting a Bravo because of faster set up (will keep the H17 for days when I have the time). How long does the Bravo take to set up if starting with a Bravo on a trailer? From Hobie's website, it looks like it should be fairly quick but I was hoping some you could give me some real-life feedback. I don't get a chance to sail a lot (few times a year, unfortunately - live in MN so winter [and work] are obstacles) so I'm kind of looking for a time estimate for someone who doesn't go through the set up drill many times a year. I also have a Laser (my current "fast set up" boat) - but am thinking I'll get rid of it if I get the Bravo. Any thoughts on Laser vs Bravo (or for that matter H17 vs Bravo) and other thoughts on Bravo in general that aren't posted already would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
