Wow, I had no idea this was builder-supplied equipment! It must be a powerboat thing, since I see lots and lots of them on the adverts for go-fast boats.
Would you have some pictures to show me the difference between marginal and more fully-featured "wind lasses"?
I do perfectly understand that, in general, it's never a good idea to try to save money on the "wind lasses", and this is a classic case of "if you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford one".
