Steve, another addition to ease your worries. This supposed to be a self-build class by amateurs, I mean not professional builders are very much appreciated in the class.

I have seen broken masts, broken planks, broken hulls, and runners traveling with chocks 1m high over the ice without control.

I have seen severe injuries that ended up lifetime disabilities.

What I haven’t seen in the last 20 years are lawsuits regarding equipment failure.

I dont think in these circumstances anybody could be accountable for building structurally or technologically insufficient equipment.

If we do have worries about it then just stop building stuff ourselves and let the pros do it.

Thanks,

Peter
