Re: Sneakeasy Modification - Why?
- Hi Gregg
It's nice to hear from you, hope all is well. Thanks for your kind
words about my cabin idea. Your site was what convinced me to build
Sneakeasy in the first place. After reading all the posts on this
topic, a great worthwhile discussion in my opinion, I have decided
not to build a cb box and cb. I was in discussion with Peter Lenihan
off line and when calculating the size of my present keel 2" x 8'
about 1.3 sq ft area I realized that a scaled down Wyoming board
would be about the same size! What would I gain? I had a temporary
hard cover over the cockpit area a while back and still had ok
control coming into a dock. I did learn that using the wind to push
me to the dock was good technique, when I was on the downwind side of
the dock I was usually pushed away. I think it makes great sense on
Jeff's Wyoming but on a flat bottom Sneakeasy a permanent keel is
sufficient, with careful use of the wind instead of fighting it.

- Not as fast, but how 'bout an electric one?
