For those that take things too serious this is a bit of fun.

While the shops sell out of basic stuff as the carona six pack spreads.....

What items would make it into your windsurfering end of days quiver.

Lol cause you can never have enough downhaul.

I was thinking a spare formula fin to use as a weapon.

The carbon daggerboard of my old F2 Lightning. That's a weapon!

The jagged edge of a broken fiberglass mast gives you a weapon with some reach.

Interesting picture showing the inside of the vessel!

I dont think there would be much more drag than on a normal longboard at sub planing speeds. The waterline length is very long, so at displacement speeds I am guessing that it would slide along very nicely.

But the mass is high so acceleration would be sluggish. I think it would a big handful if it reached planing speeds

By the way, what is it dragging behind on that rope Trolling for dinner?

Plenty of room for Pasta and Dunny paper.
