    I was surprised at the general lack of protection of the hull. It only takes one errant crane swing or a wayward container for the hull to get a good whack. Then what do you do? No insurance could cover for lost time and experience of having to miss some or all of the ACWS... Fingers crossed...

    The only time most of us we get to see this excrement is when the last few of you tread in it and show us your shoe... Just step around it via Iggy like the rest of us do :-)

  10. Replica flew... tragic story... that plane had many attributes that made it an amazing object of engineering, but a very, very unsafe vehicle to pilot into the air... https://www.motor1.com/news/93099/bugatti-100p-replica-airplane-crashes-killing-its-designer-and-builder/ Forward-swept wings and fuselage reminiscent of some team foils though!

    But why do you want downforce?

    Oh I understand ground effect (indeed I'm a Chapman/Lotus fan boi)... That wasn't the question I asked...

    But how do you get ground effect to create downforce on just one side? Because if it's across the whole boat as is typical, the RM is the same, but with increased drag and negative-lift. I think this is the point others are trying to make.
