Re: Broken Racing Catamaran (Foiler)

Good example of design construction towards the minimum structure.

Clearly the design parameters were now either adequate or its use had exceded the design life....

Must be built with foam sandwich to be floating so high with inadequate carbon fibre at the stress point. Just don't build a cruising cat this way.

Re: Broken Racing Catamaran (Foiler)

I was thinking of course it's floating, it was built to fly

odd rig. Looks like headsails tacked to each hull.
