Looking at the video, I think you're right. Just before they go to the moon there's a BIG flurry of water off the port foil. I bet the housing gave out and it ripped backwards, giving it way too much lift at a really bad moment.....
I'm not so sure about that, I think it may have just been the change in angle on the foil as they lose the rudder and the bow shoots up, they get more lift and then its game over. It's pretty similar to ETNZ's first capsize in 2019 I think, except much quicker...

Really?  AM was traveling at about 40 knots when they launched out of the water.

How long did it take OR to get back to the dock when they broke up in SF Bay? Seems like it didn't get back to the dock until the next morning.
