That is very helpful. ha ha! I have gone through the logic and decided to buy the Balogh Batwind. The whole rig is only 23 lb. The sail (38 square feet) allows me to reef 4 sizes of sail depending on the wind condition (a neat feature). I don't need a trailer for it. I can take the sail and mast down or put them up while ON WATER. I can paddle while sailing upwind or downwind. People did a 2200 miles expedition with the thing. The wait is 3 months. Can you believe that? I am sureprised no one on this board has done it. I may be the only idiot.
