someone from Aussie land made a mod on his :macm: & made a winged D/B for his M

As for a winged center board I,ve done that mod :)

One other minor issue that comes to mind on both the X and the M is there is no positive lock down on the foil, without a positive lock down the lift would only serve to push the board back up as it has nothing to push against, only a minor thing that can be overcome but just one to add to the mix

Talking about foils. This is a small boat virtually flying - at 5 knots!
