    I have recently changed the slot seal strips on me Omega and was finally able to sail in some wind. Enough to push her past 5 knots a couple of times. I found very little turbulence in the trunk now and was able to see the level of the water and could tell if i was heavy to front or back. I sail single handed almost always and use this indication plus any water coming in from the drain holes to level the boat. The Capri is very sensative to weight placement. Also try a few roll tacks if you REALLY want to see this work for you. Charley
