    With the glide free kit for Lasers, I'd like some reasoning the Sunfish could not do the same, if re-inforced properly to take the extra stress. ...like CB trunk, gudgeons, etc. Foiling Fish just sounds nice to say, if I might.

    Upon reading the recommendations, knowledgeable foilers say to start with a planing hull. :oops:

    Yes, a fish can plane just fine when on a reach in bigger breeze.
