Nobody seems to talk about F 3, they run both they don't seem to complain. They run at the same time. The newer boats seem to be all canopy. They don't hit each other. The accidents they have had, the canopy's seem to have done their job. It works there it should work in other classes.
I know that if I go racing it will canopied.
