    Ha! back to the days of wild experimentation with outline - I love it!

    ABC showing WOXI with most crew up on the bow to lift the stern and shy reaching on port.

  5. Just checked local pricing here is Australia. The new supplier isn't exactly massively undercutting torqeedo. Might have to wait a little longer for electric powah.
  6. It's about time another manufacturer popped up in this space. Torqeedo has been out on their own for a long time. The new guys products look very similar to the torqeedo product. Hopefully they will perform well.

    F-22 Update

    That furling video makes it look pretty easy - good for a small family cruise scenario.
  8. This thread needs new data. Where is the video and media reports?

    F-22 Update

    Any chance of getting a boat to the sydney boat show next year? There was acres of gin palace with a few cruising cats and a spirited 380 but no small trimarans to look over (other than the micro hobies). It would be great to have an f22 for the crowds to clamber over next year chaps.

    Radio Control Multihulls

    Cavandish. Your suggestion presumes a real desire to proceed. This isn't really borne out by the actions of the last couple of weeks. Looking at the last set of LawnamenT photos I think forward buoyancy might also be an issue. The sailplane looks like it could easily overpower all three bows, particularly if boatspeed is low (which it must be at some point). I know all the theory about pitch stability from the foils which Doug is relying on but that stability could just force a low shallow submarine instead of an asymptotic dive. Less spectacular but not exactly the desired outcome.

    Prediction. When the first sail occurs, issues to do with the distribution of buoyancy in the floats are found and the boat returns to the shop for a 6-12 month rebuild. It will be claimed that great promise was shown and that the project was a success.

    Looks like a very neat package. What is the production rate now? How soon will the factory be at full production?

    Doug reminds me of a modern day Donald Crowhurst. Full of promises and claims and even keen on masthead floatation like Donald. Not so strong on delivery though... I wish him a more successful result should he be able to bring himself to move from the comfort of the theoretical phase into the harder realities of actually sailing.
  14. I pronounce this thread dead.

    2-3 years is ok for my circumstances though it must seem like a long wait for some. The product looks good and matches my anticipated future requirements. Thanks for the info, I will go back to lurking the thread for updates.
