Its great to see the MOD70 powered up and flying.... excellent design.

You sure about that? What about the whole flipping thing....

A lot of modifications have been made to Oman to make sure that doesn't happen, especially as Gavignet is going solo.

The rule is no longer average freeboard, it's now taken at certain points along the hull, and so they can't build another.
