New IRC 40? The latest from Jerome Milgram?

 
Looks like it tracks upwind like shit but hauls ass of the breeze. I don't know how I feel about Scow bows on anything other than scows... Looks a little like a turd

Um, I'm going to guess a boat with a u-berth rather than a v-berth so doofus hipsters can have fore-peak menages?

That abomination will have gobsmacking amounts of interior volume...fugly, but roomy.

I was a bit disappointed when I saw the rig. I was hoping for something racer / cruiser where someone had finally worked out how to do a scow bow in this area of design, so something like the next iteration of a First 40 or so.

i know this guy Barry. he worked with Ketterman and Long on LONGSHOT and broke world records with rigs made with Wing masts.

I know he gives exactly one fuck what anybody thinks 'cause he had a thirty year career making people eat their words.

He likes fast. Antrim lives for fast. 20K lbs should scoot fine. Just like Raison brought his idea to the minis for mocking and derision, and then kicked their ass, time will tell here. and don't judge that monomaran long straight waterline.

the only thing truly fugly is a bow shape that seems designed to pick up the ocean and drop on deck... that's mos fugly... and stupid.

total rig weight above the deck will be under 400 lbs. plenty of sail area for easy cruising, one halyard, one sheet. elder love.

and I'll bet you there's a lot to learn about how the junk rig functions and Antrim might get that right too.

party barge? shit yeah. since when is cruising serious?

wait for it
