    new stuff in the a-class

    Don't think that's the case in north America. To add to that I know of 1 boat in the U.S. that could foil (DnA w/ J boards) . 1.

    No they didn't. We put them there. Nacra 6.0 castings. They always came stock with car mounted cleats, which I love on my A and despised on my N/I-20.
