    good question! Cockpit layout got me. Too low to stand inside full length.. The outside cockpit is a bit like an old fashioned boat which i like it .. Less room to move then less likely to get hurt.

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    Like someone said, every team would build light as possible. OD keel is problematic because it doesn't involve structure of hull that should be part of OD .. For instance, Volvo V65 is the whole OD and none of competitors can build lighter, obviously. On other hand, Imoca takes OD keel and breaks the hull apart in keel collision. We see Imocas that go faster and faster. You dont want add weight and compromise speed vs safety unless other do that too. Its where OD is useful. Chapman built notoriously light F1 cars and they werent safe.

    we focus on keel too much. We forget hull that hold the keel.. sometimes hull is a weak point. Thats the case of Hugo. The hull is not exactly OD and its better to have keel that breaks. Not the hull.

    i was thinking more of crash scenario, not only fatigue. Its what Chimp said.

    not to mention that new boats go higher speed so it has to be updated ..faster therefore heavier

    I doubt it would be same in the South Ocean. You´d be evacuated immediately. We have seen that AT had work hard a few hours to release the keel while it kept damaging the hull. Imagine to try do that in South Ocean in huge waves? Nope, some homework are still to do for the OD keel. Add some weight and find a reliable, easy mechanism of "release the keel". See the example of Kito de Pavant. It´d happen for AT in same way.
