What are you going to do with it? - Race it? Then it would have to be offshore and no-one is racing Phantoms - Which Phantom would you use instead of the Backdraft and what would its top speed be?

I would go for the Backdraft - probably unless you were going to gamble on every race being rough - but then they don't race if it's really rough!

Backdraft

Carlos,

dont know if you recall our conversation, but you seemed dead-keen on that backdraft. Dont do a 'me' and feck about..... get what you want and when your going out for a days pleasure, limit your crew to a maximum size of 3ft 6 and 6 stone....that way you can still take 2!

If you're gonna go racing it's gotta be the backdraft, but remember they are desperately impractical for anything else.

Even simple things like mooring them up nicely is a nightmare coz of the wings.
