sailing oc1's

I have never paddled an oc1 before and am in the market. I am accustomed to oc6 and sailing on larger boats, so the idea of getting an oc1 that can be rigged for sailing appeals to me. Can anyone clue me into any major differences which may exist when paddling an oc1 which is sail capable (but not rigged) Vs. paddling a non-riggable canoe?

Try the site for ''. They offer a glass (?) OC1 with a sail and even a canopy from the iakos. I have to admit I've never paddled one, but I'd also like to try, bet it's fun downwind. The boat weighs about 40 lbs rigged, so don't think you'll get much run, but the design seems reasonable and it you didn't want to 'race', but wanted some play options and variety seems nice. i'd like to hear from anyone who has actual experiebce with this kanu.

After going through the budget the mula just isn't there at the moment. I am pretty sure this set up will find a good home. Despite being out of reach right now, the price (without having inspected it) looks like a decent deal.
