Sunfish Sailfish sailing differences?

I've been sailing Sunfish for years, but have never sailed a Super Sailfish. I know the physical differences between them, but what about on the water? What's a comforatable sitting position? Does the narrow hull make a big difference? Any tips would be appreciated.

It has been a loooonnnnggg time since I have been on a Sailfish, but if it is breezy you will find it is a wild, wild ride. Redefines tippy! You will just have to find a comfortable (semi comfortable at least) sitting position.

I think you will be very happy to have built the boat. I recall it being lots and lots of fun, especially when windy. In any type of breeze, you are going to get wet. Have fun, and post some pictures. It will be a trip down a very pleasant memory lane for some of us. BB

Thanks BB, I sort of planned on getting really wet on it. As long as it stays upright more than on it's side it will be fun.
