Suggest going with the HOOT.  


Much easier to get under the boom, performance that will plaster a smile all over your face, and light weight.


Just need CS to start getting them rolling out the door!!!

Can someone explain how the mast appears to be floating?  


It certainly doesn't seem to be attached to the hull except, by some shrouds.  Is this what we really should consider as "vapourware"???

Could you find someone with a NC milling maching or a NC router?


Then you could make up:


- the blank


- some forms to support/hold it, once one side is machined (so that you can machine the other)


Would certainly be much easier to get something reliable (though you will probably have to CAD up your design for this)

I'm not sure that the standard naca 00xx sections are the best for you.


There has been heaps of work on this and would be worthy of a search on this.


Need to factor in what speeds you are doing too.


JulianB, we are all not worthy, wrote some bits on this here


Good luck with your project.

And not be class legal....

That's why so many people ditch the class...........expense is the problem!



Expense is part of the reason this sport is getting ditched, not just the A's.


Time or lack of, is another.
