Yesterday we had just finished racing and were pulling our F-82R out at the ramp and as always it attracted lots of attention and comments. One such conversation was with a guy with one of those growly cool dude voices:

Cool Dude: "Cool boat - how many people can it hold?"

Us: "We normally sail with two, but sometimes take three for longer races."

Cool Dude: "I bet it could take 8-10, and it might even work better because you're fully engaging the pontoons!"

Us: "We like to keep the boat light so it goes faster..."

Cool Dude: "You need to fully engage the pontoons, it will work better."

Us: "Just because you could doesn't mean you should..."

Cool Dude: "You want to engage those pontoons!"

So there you have it - if your multi isn't working as well as you'd expect maybe you need to add weight to engage the pontoons!

Dude just got his pontoons confused with his nacelles.
