Ok, I'll have a stab. 

 

Some sorta horizontal withdrawable NACA shaped appendage on a control line that is not fully rove.

A lotta cabon fibre in the bottom structure with another shaped recepticle with nothin init......

Nah.......Haven't a bloody clue.......

 

Ok, how about a horizontal / lateral type blade appendage that works switchblade style when someone calls you up........ and gets real close...and ya don't wanna go......cop this.......!

 

Oh....never mind....

Cheers,

Jim ;)

Looks like an interesting way to sink when the seals fail, on the second or third deployment, of that appendage.

Kool otherwise.

What are they trying to achieve there? I understand the basic DSS foil system, but can't say I've seen this twin foil system about.

Obvioulsly some Hot Rod's handy work.  Could be an prototype/mock of the FH's "lee boards".  After all, it's moving day, right?!?!!!!!

The Quant 30 uses two independently retractable curved foils instead of one foil sliding across the boat:

What's the advantage of 2 foils over 1? You're only going to use 1 at a time anyway. Seems like you're having to carry around the weight of an extra foil, but I'm sure there are advantages i'm missing.

 --------------------
With two foils you have more options-for instance, in heavy air both foils could be left out. They could be left out at any time there is a lot of manouvering in conditions that the foil helps and when they are out they have the full effective area. The Quant 28 foil was so long that it always stuck out on both sides(but only with partial area each side)-the retracting foils eliminate any foil from sticking out.

PIX-Q 28 with foil sticking out both sides-picture from Michi, PDF below with Q30DSS details:

The real question is; "Why is it?" Looks like enhancement for displacement mode.... Dumb!

To whom doug? to you???  Just so they can be innundated with pages of cut and paste of content you didn't even author?

 

Fuck off you asshole.  Stop trashing people on other sites behind their backs

 

 

You do realize that with behaviour like that, having you endorse a boat is like the kiss of death

Well I'm interested Doug, how do they keep the water out when heeled!

 

Got a couple of the straight board variety in Brisbane, and I have seen the boat in HK (think Frank Pong own's it) at pace and its pretty quick. But then again, I was sailing a Magic 25 and a tired one at that.

 

Can see the logic in the twin foils but not at functionality.

 

Love to get some ration conversation without 4 letter expletives !

I have no clue-I've only seen the pictures I posted here-but thats a good question. I would imagine that Hugh has dealt with it, though. As far as I know there are only  BBB, Quant 28, the Mini and the soon to be Quant 30. Lots of improvement since BBB. And then a 100 footer and a 50 footer down the line. One thing I think they discovered is that they don't want to add DSS to a boat not specifically designed for it-make overs have too many problems, as I understand it.

Julian, you could e-mail Hugh and find the answer fairly quickly-just go to the site.......http://www.dynamicst...itysystems.com/

I don't quite get what you're saying here?

PS- I think the Hong Kong boat was designed by Hugh but is not DSS

Yep, Hugh and I have had a ta e ta.

 

Have not seen the BNE boats in action, but as I commented the HK boat is impressive.   No idea who designed it so I will take your word for it!

 

Re    "Can see the logic in the twin foils but not at functionality".

 

I'm a big KISS believer, so the straight foil appears better on KISS.

 

But as Hugh commented the twin foil allows you to move the windward foil, while is not under load, and you can pre-deploy, so I get that also.

 

Very ingenious!   May have to bludge a ride on the HK boat!

Julian, check out this thread-some interesting info on the unmatched racing record of the Quant 28 DSS, and in post 1-Q28 video and in post 4 Q36 video-both outstanding. http://forums.sailin...howtopic=143595
