When I called in my order for a CH17, the man on the other end said that with my light weight [190#] I should get a CH17LT. I TOLD HIM THAT I DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD WORK WITH MY BIG FEET. HE AGREED, BUT SIAID THAT I SHOULD INSTALL A SKEG OR RUDDER FOR USE IN HIGH WINDS. I DECIDED TO GO WITHOUT IT ,THINKING THAT I COULD RETROFIT IF NECESSARY. I HAVE USED IT IN FAIRLY HIGH WINS WITH NO PROBLEMS. HAVE FUN!
