I was pretty sure there was one out there that went to frame 89....

I know, if anyone could, you can identify the handy work of the builder.  
And he was an early first adopter of the flush deck i550.

i550-36

Besides hull #36 that I got from Chris, Leeholl's hull #350 is also being built with a cockpit extending to frame 89. http://i550na.org/leeholl/blog


I extended the cockpit to frame 89 (or actually stopped the cabin at frame 89 ;-) so I can step my rotating carbon mast in the cockpit. Time will tell if the decision to support a rotating mast, and the room to move weight forward will have any real benefit. My motivation in everything I have done with my build is to explore the limits of the design in the spirit of driving innovation. Hopefully some of what I have tried will add competitive value ;-)
