    That s certainly an advantage of leeboards, as you re learning with your new boat. But Cartopper s centerboard is stuck up forward where it doesn t get in

      That's certainly an advantage of leeboards, as you're learning with your
      new boat. <g> But Cartopper's centerboard is stuck up forward where it
      doesn't get in the way so much, and you wouldn't want to stick people in
      the ends of the boat anyway. Cartopper is laid out with floorboards only
      in the middle part of the boat, to encourage the crew to stay where they
      belong.
