Besides fly line management problems and how to land a large fish with the SailRig in place, I think it would be tricky wiggling out of a C17 to stand. Since you said you had not finished your build you might want to consider modifying your cockpit.
Laszlo’s photo (see bottom) of a Duck coaming on top of a C16 seems to indicates it might be possible to construct a Duck size cockpit on a C17 for extra room — and have a ready made spray skirt and cockpit cover when CLC releases them.
Another thread of interest shows how a Texas builder turned his kayak into a SOB (sit on bottom). See Kurt’s comments at www.clcboats.com/forum/bbs.pl/cart_id=/?read=83589
There is also an interesting photo of a modified C17 cockpit in the CLC photo gallery at www.clcboats.com/boats/chesapeake17_photos.php (third photo up on the right).
Just a thought...
Tight lines, LeRoy
