Shows just how far Doug was off in designing a boat to his own spec: (not just the peoples foiler).
-You sit in the center (as you do just off to the side on a laser). Cause its soo hard to move around (just gotta do a couple sit-ups before you sail one of these but your still sorta in the center! (maybe strap on a little bar to rest your back on).
-Foils in light air, manageable in 25. -Clearly is flying is almost no air in the image shown, and just stick a 4.7 kiddies sail in when there's a blow.
-Pitch-pole stability, theres is your Self righting trimaran problem solved! (remove the amas and 17 other foils and just it just rolls back over!).
The only differences are:
-It wont cost $100 000
-It wont take 4 hours to set up and 5 hours to pack it away
-Most of the parts are every where in the world
-Its trailer-able, hell its carry-able not 800lbs or whatever the 18 foor long by 27 foot wide multi is
-Its a blast for two if you don't want to race cause its got some serious boyancy
-Its not as fragile as a teenage girls heart
-It'll have resale value
-Okay so it might do 25 knots downwind and 15 upwind and point high, not whatever the 27 foot wide 18 foot long trimaran will do if it ever gets out there, or if we ever see a video of the everlasting model project flying (i applaud you're commitment still mate and follow your project along just to see what it will do, but i recon with the right input it does have potential, so still best of luck i hope its the best thing ever (in your opinion and your life goal succeeds with your unstoppable racing machine, but please stop re posting the same shit 1000 000 times, we all know it mate, and all have our own ideas, but when you post original shit, fuck, IT REALLY CAN BE be pretty interesting! and yes please strap 100 gopros to it so you dont have the same 2 photos to show your entire lifes work)
And for the project,
-What stages will the kit be available and cost estimates... (and amount of work estimated to get one up to that point)?
-AND HOW SOON! because by Golly I'm in Perth and the Freo doctor is coming in a few months, and when we cant get out on the tornado I want something single-handed that i can rig up in 10 minutes, have a blast and get my fix, and in 10 minutes have it gone again!
EXCELLENT WORK GUYS!
PS. I recon with the option of the 3 Rigs, and the simplicity of hopefully only a few tiny mods to an existing boat and a well priced kit, i recon this could be seen around A LOT! (and I'm sure hoping i can be tearing it up on one this Summer!!!!)
