    Just replicate the Airstream trailer used by the Apollo 11 crew and set on Hornet "+3" They can visit the Hangar Deck today for ideas, no need to reinvent the wheel. They entered, were there for a Month? Crane picked the whole thing up with the astronauts when the Carrier arrived home port.

    A good job to date. I was skeptical of this class. AM appears to have a sound methodology. Good Yacht name. Classy "cove" stripe. Have to see how the two boats jump up on foils differently, I have a hunch that longer effective waterline at a small angle of heel could make Defiant a bit easier to launch, a longer effective waterline in displacement mode just before liftoff, and require less inputs to maintain course between modes.
  3. I really wonder about appendage twist or harmonic oscillation interfering with control and or foiling stability. Lots of mass that could contribute to interesting consequences. The "model" says it will work, but is the model catching everything? These yachts will not be sailing in very close quarters to each other.

    I have been away but quite agree, no influence from here, we will just have to watch what unfolds. Someone in NZ though has a concept of what they will create for the proposed rule.

    The cost lowering avenue at this point would be a version of the AC45, even then it would still be an arms race. The 45's are "long enough" to be Deed compliant. The 62's will be entertaining. But I dont see them going beyond this cycle.

    He will be well suited to the management side of things, a good move for BAR.
