    Formula 40 Trimaran Spirit of England

    Thanks for sharing. Great videos! She's still a gorgeous boat.

    R2AK on a Beachcat

    Tornado wouldn't be a bad choice. They're still fast. Pretty cheap kick-up boards and rudders nice wide platform with good stability There must be some old Beijing olympic boats out there.
  4. yeah i get that but other foiling tri's.. maserati, gitana..etc retain a daggerboard. Just wondering if the relatively small float foils will allow it to point high without sliding sideways too much.
  5. The boat looks awesome! Not doubting Morelli & Melvin's abilities.. but i was wondering how this boat will perform upwind without a daggerboard. I know the game on this machine will be VMG (and one design racing).. but will the float foils be enough to allow it to point high enough?

    F18: who takes the main upwind?

    100% the crew. The helm trims the downhaul in gusts if the crew is having to trim too much mainsheet.

    An update on facebook stated that Morticia broke her bow sprit when she hit the back of a large wave.

    Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    I have an F28R.. which is similar in size. It would not fit in a 40ft container without taking the beams/floats off. I decided against dismantling to avoid anything being damaged. It had to go in an open 40ft rack due to it being oversized width.

    A bit different!

    The wing mast is pretty interesting too. Looks like quite a bit of sail area on its own.

    Stolen from the F-boat forum. "I've never met Ian, but he made my life so much better" I love my F28R. Thanks Ian

    F18 ownership costs

    F18's eat blocks and lines. Capsizes can easily destroy tiller extensions (and sometimes booms and sails). I've seen a few spinnaker poles bent due to crashes. Make sure the standing rigging and the bolts that attach all standing rigging to the hulls have been checked or replaced. Apart from that.. they are tanks and pretty cheap to run.

    Didn't it become the DNA F4?
