"Shocked or afraid"....seems a little bit out of proportion. Juan K has been offering all kinds of innovations since he knows how to sail. The question is:"TP rulers will allow it IF it does make a difference in boat speed?"In case you didn't notice how radical that new bow is have a look at these...
I don't know if I should be shocked or afraid.
I do not think this is it... I believe this is RIO (the old JV Stay Clam) sailing in the UK at the Easter Regatta. The JK boat is in Spain (NZ?).Looking at this image:
I can see why this might work. One tonners towed a hell of a lot more water than a TP does so the benefits may come in entirely different areas.
By "afraid" I mean I'd be 'afraid it was going to be really fast and I'm not sailing on it'
I know this isn't the new Juan K boat.. The images are of two racially different bow designs.1270334367[/url]' post='2799803']I do not think this is it... I believe this is RIO (the old JV Stay Clam) sailing in the UK at the Easter Regatta. The JK boat is in Spain (NZ?).
The sprit and deck should give it away.
