    Because there are no bulbs and the weight has to go somewhere

    He may have to swallow humble pie or he may not? He certainly is arrogantly confident with their B2, lets wait and see tomorrow I hear?

    If it's fucked it's a massive moment in this game IMO. Because it means they've got something wrong. The photos aren't completely conclusive though sometimes I see failure others I see a possible reflection? Huge moment if it is a failure..

    Look at the video further up the page they are very high and out of the water. Any higher they might take off. The 2nd video was shot after they came back down.

    I think what he is simply saying is the hull itself won't decide who the winner is a the end of the day? That could be right or it could be wrong? Even if one boat is 3-5 seconds quicker onto the foils than another it won't matter if the slowest boat to foil is 1-2 knots faster around the course. It's fair to say though that Ineos and AM are quite different as hulls now so one hull could well be faster both in the water and out? All the designers have said hull design is crucial even though they are designed to fly because at 50 knots aero matters. Early days until we see NZ and LR..IMO

    Looking forward to seeing what she looks like sailing and foiling at speed.? Also how quickly she gets up on her foils. Still haven't seen much of Patriot doing the same? Did see her get up but they were systems testing the boat for a while before that so can't gauge time to foil from word go so to speak.

    Ferrari Red just what the doctor ordered. B1 is a black based boat I wonder if they are changing the look with B2? It looks like way more red so far in the pic above?

    Nick Holroyd nerdy geeky designer let loose.! Simmer said quote "Nick are you sure your signing off on this?" The giant Skeg is also an Ineos Fracking sounder. Rich Reserves are located in the Hauraki Gulf..!

    I'd rather by grinding facing forward but that's just me. I doubt we'll any grinders slackening off unless GD is on Team NZ or Hutch on AM.!

    That is water reflecting back up not poor fairing LOL..! As for the bolts don't think it's an issue in terms of speed planes have rivets everywhere too.
