The way I read it is- eliminate the rule preventing true scow bows.

There is no excuse for any pleasure craft being that ugly.

In fact there is no excuse for anything being that ugly.

I love it!

I meant: I hope they will change the rule which is preventing full scow bows to happen in Class 40, as I think it is a winning solution (much better than folining)

I dont agree.

I think scow minis are very pretty. And, winning. Hope the same will happen in class 40 and Imoca.

Scow bows are a cheaper, safer and better looking (IMO) solution then Folis.

It is the future for offshore keelboat racing. Check out Charal's new bow.

Charal, Apiva and others went same direction.

Charal is the first to have the v in the center

Bolger was a genious, by the way

Foils or no foils... The trend is for narrow “static” displacement hulls for minimised wave making, lateral resistance and directional stability with wide flares for dynamic lift and stability. Pushing as much water as possible under rather than aside.
