Has anyone actually built/flown a Bensen B-6 glider? Or even seen one fly? Would it be a viable option for a homebuild project?

It needs floats, then you could tow it behind a boat.

Lots of fun but a challenge to kite if you don't have "steady" winds around 22 and above. I never did the B6. Good realitively cheap project. I would only use the later model control head. Towing presents a whole new set of challenges.
