    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Could be though I center of mass is also stipulated in the rule. So they have 50 cm to play with in fore and aft position. Could be important for balance/trim. I had a look for a minimum weight but seems what with the foiling we now have maximum weights. I couldnt see a minimum weight anywhere. so i guess they are building to maximum weight for max righting moment. I guess having less weight at the extremties of the boat also effects the inertial properties. Wether or not that has any serious effect idk.

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Its easier to add laminte and strengthen a boat than it is to take layers away. Also I think the natur of these boats is that they will all be scrapped post AC. You dont see many AC72's sailing around these days do you. I agree they have probably pushed it a bit to far in too many areas causing them excessive downtime. But, if they can learn from these failures and boat two has all these items beefed up to overcome the the failures they have seen then maybe it could just be that edge needed to win. Maybe.

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    You could look at it that they are finding the limit on many items. It is essentially a test boat after all.
