> What the heck you sailing a playschool rubber duck?
No, you''ll find that the water ballasted rubber ducks, while lacking in directional stability do have quite a bit of roll recovery (I''ve personaly seen then recover from beyond 160deg) With only 800 lbs in the keel, I''ve sacraficed that, but I can run down wind alot faster than those ducks, even with the washcloth spinnaker they run. =)
