Re: Frankie

Since Frankie seems to be a very appreciated person, as his designs seem to enjoy a good reputation - why did so many people laugh at me for wanting to race the Green in a Prelude (which I did 3 years ago, and as did Eric Deguil before me)?

Re: why would you not use a pump?

the hazzle and the weight The moments that I would really need it, no pump would be fast enough (in the meat of a big, long rapid), and all other situations I can just dump.

Re: Esquif Extasy! New model!

It might feel less stable, but in the end, the only one who will be able to tell will be you We have the first batch on their way to the Americas, so I...
