Heh...I should post the camber of my decks...I'm not standing on a flat surface unless the boat's heeled 15 degrees or so.
The other points are good ones. Perhaps I should just go for a 2 KW higher up (I fly a yankee, so it's not likely to snag), so I can have a decent range and a little bit of a power savings.
