    In the presser did Max say 'ETNZ are fasta' or 'ETNZ are faster'? And when Bertelli said 'no chance' did he mean LR has no chance?

    Its pretty clear he's either learned some humility or had it very clearly spelled out to him by Bertelli/whoever that he tone it down. Or as I write that, it occurs maybe it was the other way around: the dickwad persona was part of his Orifice employment? With the split helms: is leeward 'off'...

    Has their forefoot always been so directly radius curved? Always was well curved but I didn't think it was a direct radius like that, taking lessons from local Starlings?

    That was why I suggested a while back that AM might have mounted theirs on some kind of suspension. Could be the arm flexing though.

    Wow, did we miss that? Up-thread we have Weta pics clearly showing runners present in some, not in others. Have they given away a secret too soon or have other teams been doing this too?

    Probably preferable to taking a chainsaw to the coamings.

    I'm glad someone else pointed out those cockpit coamings. I believe they're going to need mods.

    Any new boat with some novel systems. I dunno how many more days before things get worrying but a few days with a new boat isn't it.

    Sure it is. Test sail, test systems. IF systems work DO more sailing ELSE fix/rework systems that didn't work -> Test Sail.

    I never bought the idea of the below deck boom, slots thing. It was based on a couple of low-res pics from bad angles. We've never really seen any hi-res pics from better angles so nothing to dis/prove it definitively.

    Pretty subtle refinement -> they must be pretty confident they're in the right part of the rule, a slight move towards TNZ. Slightly fatter skeg (I also saw that as a flat bottomed skeg on first view!), slightly sleeker bow, sharpened chines aft, cleaned up deck. Something something eating...

    Because it actually follows proper flag design rules. Its simple, visually striking/unique & cleverly incorporates multiple relevant meanings :wub:

    I was thinking sail loft myself. Thats one fucking expensive tent foundation. Such a shame the Govt & Council didn't have the 'vision' to invest in that fucking huge Waterworld island :rolleyes:
