What's an e-boat?
Beside that, two things. If you have a class, any modifications will need to comply with association rules. If you're doing the handicapped thing (PHRF, etc... ) then it's all about gain in performance vs. ratings hit. You'll have some math to do. It's not a bad idea to talk to your sailmaker and local PHRF (or the like) raters so you have some idea of what's going on.
A third thing. Assymetrics are NOT better for running at deep angles. That's symmetrical land. If you have the option for both sym and assym kites like the Farr 30, you won't need a symmetrical reacher. Also, a dedicated symmetrical reaching kite is cut very different from a heavy air 'chicken' symmetrical chute. Again, a talk with a sailmaker will sort much of this out for you.
