I saw this 30' Sisu on Yachtworld.com and thought the lifting strakes were a little different. Is this how they came from the factory or are they add-ons? Anyone know if they help to stabilize the boat from rocking? They must help some I would think.

My boat rolls like your Sisu - especially when drift fishing. I was thinking about installing some too. Maybe some composite material and leftover fiberglass I have lying around. I can always take them off if it doesn't work out. How long for a 20' boat? Anyone?... Anyone?...(Ferris B.)

That's a great idea. Why don't you see riding sails more often? I wonder how big one would have to be for a thirty footer?

Maybe an old Sunfish sail will work.
