From the Manual:

"The Megabyte is A boat that would fill the demand for a boat in which parents could take their children on the water and teach them how to sail and that could carry some "serious weight" with a proper cockpit laid out for two people, but with the simplicity of a single sail. It would have no wires holding up the mast which would be a lightweight, tapered, carbon fiber tube. It would be a pleasure to sail, i.e. it would be very fast and it would be light enough (130lbs) to throw up on the car top making it a truly recreational product. Finally, and for purely selfish reasons, he wanted a boat that sailors well over 200 lbs could singlehand competitively with rig controls that make the boat easy to de-power - a sort of "Gentleman's Finn!" The fact that the Megabyte is attractive, and a very fast yet stable, exciting boat was a "given" from day one with Bruce Farr and Russ Bowler behind the design of the boat."
