Actually, it looks like there's a black mast up the middle of the forward foil. Which doesn't, AFAICS, need to turn. So simplifies instruments and lights,Correct Ed about the multi, imocas and minis with rotating spar using a sensor, easy to do. but that foil is hinged rotating. Maybe a bit more tricky to get a sensor to work.
The red over green lights is a good one.
Overall a minor problem I reckon
Site shows masthead, which it has to be for reefing.No, Headstay is to a fractional take off - see the pics at the top of the thread.
Good eyes LeoV - but is that "bump" under the dagger case articulation real, or just another bit of Graphics that looks 3D?
Without the time to look elsewhere it looks suspiciously like a sibling of the smallest red sphere just above the case fairing at the front...... possibly ?
A few scow questions for people.
Do you think a fixed keel version of maximum would work? Would still have water ballast but for offshore only
I know you can't cant the keel to leeward in the light to reduce wetted area by heeling the boat. I know that Remi Fermin (741) went very well with his fixed keel glass boat.
What I'm getting at is if you are going to do most of your racing around the bay (legs usually between 1-4NM) would you loose to much by having a fixed keel. Also not racing class.
The next option would be to have a single dagger-board on the center line with a canting keel rather than twin boards.
Looking at 741 it looks like a good light simple boat. This seems to perform better than a complex boat.
It's always hard just looking at results with the skipper being such a big part of a boat performance.
