I started modeling this as I am thinking about building the real thing. Sharpies draft very little water and are incredibly fast. Almost as fast as I whipped this up!! I think I would go with a traditional Marconi and Genoa set up. This boat is from 1923! @ 35' feet and 7.5" inches long, it is a bit long to tow, even though it is a lightweight. I'd like something half that size. It's nice to pipe dream.
