Lovely piece of kit, or the way the kite goes under the floor, loads of little bits to make it easier to Sail.


Also love how an i14 is considered a lead lugger!!

Indeed, someone needs to do that on a cherub.

Had to put it somewhere, also you don't see them carry them to the water.

That would probably require a new build, or at least a very major rebuild. It's a lot of work for the convenience, also the panel over the top would need to be removable because if something breaks you'd be up a body of water without a form of propulsion!!

True, I don't think 2 feet of length justifies 20kg's

Yep! Although what goes wrong with it? You need to attach the sock to the arse of the boat so I didn't pull out, but after that it doesn't do much.

I don't carry mine to the water, that's what trolleys were invented for.

Not too sure about the metallic gold paint job. My uncle used to have a Ford Cortina that colour in about 1974.

On Halo's original implementation the kite retracted down the side tank so it was out of the way. Then we went to masthead kites so it didn't fit any more...
Oh, and the pole went down the other side tank. That wasn't such a clever idea...

Anyone prepared to carry their boat from the boat park to water when the tides out at mumbles deserves either a medal or a straight jacket!!!

Bit slow to the discussion.

I have sailed two 14s with the underfloor shute.  one had a sock inside the shute, one didnt, not sure the reasoning for each.

Cockpit is obviously alot clearer, bonus.

In waves it seems that you just fill the shute with water and the spinnaker keeps the water in there. obviously deck design
When it is light the drain at the back can be submerged (might be the transom lead) filling it up again.

Both boats were permanetly closed, i,e, not removeable. The Canadians and americans are more keen than anyone else.

If you have heard of the Killing 3 14 they have some different takes on the outting the boat together (rear gantry is a large OD carbon tube) and it has the underfloor shute too.
