Curious Prospector Cautions

    If you are installing leeboards, that would offset the tendancy of the Prospector with high sides and stems to get pushed downwind. If you are sitting in the bottom of the boat while sailing then the lower initial stability will not be as much of an issue. By the way, I had a Pal also by Cedarwood and it was fun to sail.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Paul. I plan to use leeboards, which I am very familiar with from other boats I have owned. The plan is to use an entire drop-in unit, such as the one from Lost-in-the-Woods.
