    Thank you for taking a look at the capacity tag. It is weird that the same hull form (I assume it didn't change) would have such drastic numbers. From what I read the earlier ones had a steel centerboard which would move the CG lower and allow a heaver load without worrying about balance. I...

    I left my topping lift attached to the boom and just loosed it so it didnt affect the sail. Mine is cleated on the mast so its pretty easy to do while hoisting the sails.
