    Or maybe he knows more about the retrofitted design that he either can't or won't disclose at this time.. The fact that he refrains from naming designer and fabricator is enough for me to not see him as throwing someone under the the bus... As a maker of highend racing boats I can't blame him for wanting to disassociate from keel failures.. And he has to be certain - if the hull shows up and the original design is to blame.. boy that would look stupid... If this was a car manufacturer, and the accident was due to someone replacing the steering wheel with a spannner... Don't you think said car manufacturer would do the same?

    Anyone know if the story of: how the events occoured and how the crew managed to escape is going to be told? Someone has indicated that they know the story, it must have been a harrowing experience and excellent seamanship to get everyone safe and still breathing. Or do we have to wait for the insurance claim to be done before anyone can say anything. There might be something to learn from this.. like the meridian mob...

    1. IDK.. but I'm slow... 2. Both maybe No, and you might be right, but im still not confidently convinced that foiling is for everyone, all the time, regardless of size, use and windangle.

    How much is a brand new traditional steel boat?

    I find paying 1000-1600€ a night totally outrageous.. but I might be a poor cheap as idiot... 3 nights onboard in August would set me back 4800€ that's more than I spend on vacation a year... I could eat a michelin started restaurants for that money... I doubt the food onboard is that good... It's ridiculously expensive in my world... That doesn't mean it's a bad idea.. but not sure you're attacking the issue the right way none the less... The funny thing is explained in this video, it's explained in the end why it's funny for this scenario.. take a look:

    Maybe look into other people doing the exact same.. like https://cheersyachting.com/cheers-gulet/#prices The prices seem absolutely outrageous IMHO, and that might be me not understanding the market, or the need for cash flow due high cost of operation... 3 nights with them could have me skiing for 3 weeks... And I still have to get to.turkey and back...

    what is it?

    Idunno what happened with plug, and why it was split in two... But I'm hoping that the 'sustainable' 3d printing can help plugs and prototypes come along cheaper than milling it out, with less loss of material... The concept of this particular boat I don't fully understand... A lot of proven trailerable boat in that range... But I guess it's just what the world needs... Yet another boat type...

    Swedish inshore... Interesting, 3dprinted plug... Their website links to something from Poland, therefore the FB link https://m.facebook.com/inshoreboats/
