It seems there isn't anything revolutionary in BMW Oracle's keel

Can anyone make something out of the photo? If you tweak colors with Photoshop you get a clearer picture

Yes, I do like watching that grass, it is quite exciting when there are lots of buds. Do you use hydroponics>?

I think a lot of what looks like keel is actually reflection or shadow from the hull. Take another look. I'll bet it's a prety standard hull/keel configuration.

Why are you all posting variants on the smaller pic?
Front page pic is much higher res.

Not really much of note there, longish bulb but I don't find that particularly surprising.

I am fairly sure I see twin foils if you look at the original picture and blow it up. But it looks like a bi-plane arangement. Not one in the others wake. the chord length also sceems a little short. Look closely at the top of the keel there is two distinct black areas with water between them.

Superkilt wins July's award for most off-topic post!

Back on topic - surely it would just be easier to use a polarising filter on the camera in the first place - instead of fiddling about with it electronically afterwards?
