No daggerboards that we can see so looking based on the "some unconventional underwater thinking" statement, some form of lee board similar to scows perhaps.... that or the boards are still being figured out and it will have standard boards

possible dss foil package since oats proved it was useful and the drawings could be prior to sydney to hobart

Manual Grinders will stay for the records pending the boat gets up and goes better than speedboat

bigger question is who is the builder???

Not too many builders in Maine with experience of 100' + yachts, are they ?

The boards are obviously not on the drawing right now. Comment from the project manager was "Fairly conventional asym boards, uncurved." This ain't a foiling monomaran, in other words. I do not think there are DSS or DSS-style lifting foils on the boat. Should be a lot more info coming out in a week or two.

didn't BG just prove this corner of the box, the whittled scow, doesn't work in a typical "mixed grab bag" of conditions? like when the far far shorter Ichi Ban caught up to her? and the V70s led her South?
this is possibly further into that corner.

Appears a 'between the capes' southern ocean RTW design, or trans-ocean long-distance distance compatible, ie not relying on weeks or months supply of diesel.

I really don't think one race proves much of anything.

(regarding the 'type') it was pretty obvious before the race i reckon

when you are THAT FAR in the corner of box, that is dealing with extremes the results will reflect that

as opposed to all-rounders say

should do passages in hard weather well
