    I can see how to make this boat go faster. If you stop the above vid at 0:38 plan view, it's easy to see - don't bolt on the keel, just add 2 floats & 2 beams . it will win then.

    A 6-7 m folding trimaran sailboat with cabin

    Can Mundt provide a link to his boat ? Agree with Tom, for me it would be the F7 or Libertist ; but the libertist is going to be much more convenient for you. (any issues & they are just down the road). Happy shopping !

    Fire Arrow Foil System Wins Big!

    I may be wrong, but his settling down appeared to happen just after I blasted the fuck out of him one very cranky morning. What do you think Gary ? or maybe Darth ?
  7. Just to get an understanding as to what you are proposing ; a/ are you suggesting you would act as a mentor ? b/ what materials are you thinking ? re your boat being like new - I believe you. If good materials were used & maintenance done when needed, then it is very possible. The problem for most of us is the cost of currently available materials. The next thing I can see happening is the use of waste materials being reformed as a boat building medium. Hull, rig & sails. if we look at hull/deck/interior only atm, using foam composite as the example ; reformed/recycled waste plastic to be the foam (to varying strengths) & maybe waste plastic to be the inner/outer skins. Basalt for inner & outer skins (as an option) could/will become more cost efficient in the future. (cost of volcanic rock ? got a bunch of volcanic rock that no-one wants just outside of melbourne.) Cannabis/hemp was the original form of rope/cord - -grow your own rope ? Sails will need someone much more clever than me ? but again maybe hemp fibre as a base ingredient infused with ? (plastic/basalt/other ?) Masts - unstayed will be/is the answer - possibly molded waste plastic with some sort of reo. eg. just like a concrete pour. a mould, reo bars tied together with cable ties then a pour of waste liquid plastic. (of course with some uv treatment - a few drops of ? into the melted goo) The french have already started to a degree on this route. Who will come up with the final answer/s Peter

    harryproa, congrats on the new website. It is good to have all the relevant pieces of info in one place. ( although I am itching to see the exhilarator 40 drawings ? ) The kick up boards are a VERY good idea ; & I think we will see flow on from your ideas very soon. Lastly, I cannot find the "page 6 ultime thread" ? Keep up the good work !

    Frog

    the paint job is fine, very in fashion. You know people spend hours trying to get that patina look. Initial observations on the new floats & foils ??? (too early ?) Is the float attached this way (to the beam) too allow AOA adjustments ?
