Once it went stick down turtle with a masthead float you shouldn't have to worry about that.
Thank You, I think after the first sail,I will see if my weight will pull it over.
Can't wait. I do have two "in shape sons", who both know how to swim....my dream is to get them hooked on sailing and make them crew. Ohh yaaaa ...adventure...already talking day trips up the Michigan coast line.
