Ok....so I'm around 220 lbs.and getting into an upper age bracket. I find unless there is consistent heavy air...like over 15 kts....the hiking out isn't required (just sitting on the high side with MILD hiking will do) and if the wind drops suddenly from 15 to 10kts....I'm rescuing myself from falling in the windward side, as the boat quickly will "right itself"...to the negative extreme!. Realizing it seems 160 is the ideal weight, I've obviously got that beat. So... you guys packing some "rail meat"... how much are you actually hiking out and do you ever find yourself scrambling back towards the middle as the wind speeds change abruptly? I watch all these videos with extreme hiking out and getting the butt wet....but if I go that far and I hit a wind lull....I'm taking a bath. The rapid response "sit up" isn't is quick as it used to be.
