How stable are the 17's in a blow?

Curious if you tip them in shallow water you might end up breaking the rig.

They are incredibly stable, the more breeze the merrier. those guys hardly even get off the low side w/the kite up, and get upwind just fine (scow heritage).

Sure, anytime you stick any rig in the mud, something might have to give, but I don't believe this is a regular event, perhaps you can even be the first!
