Laser Pico vs. Hobie Bravo

I am looking to buy either the Pico or Bravo. One concern is rigging each boat. Since the boat will stored on the shore of a reservoir in a remote area, all parts will need to be removed each time. Any suggestions.

The Pico was easy to rig, drop the mast in a hole, unroll main, attach sheet, go sailing.

Re: Laser Pico vs. Hobie Bravo

I had a pico and a Hobie Wave (the next bigger hobie after the Bravo) The Pico was extremely easy to rig and though it wasnt as fast as the cat, it was a much better boat to learn to sail on because it has all the same controls as a larger boat - it has a sheet, vang, outhaul, downhaul and simple traveller. The Hobie was just as easy to rig but ONLY IF YOU CAN LEAVE THE MAST UP!!!! If the Bravo is anything like the Wave, it is technically possible to put the mast up singlehanded but in reality it is a pain right in the ass. You need two people to do it easily or fast.
