Re: Interesting Sailboats

The strut on the mini looks a lot sturdier than the one on the django...
Besides - a mini weighs around a ton with roughly 3 - 400 kg in the bulb... If it is a heavy one...
And granted - race boats with their canting keels impose really big loads on the strut, especially if driven hard which is their usual state of motion...
Anyway, i would not feel safe with a thin strut like this one...
