Wow, I unfortunately read Chan's blog last night. I'm sorry but that guy has one really bad boat. In the 3 hours it took to read all the posts I don't think there any periods where he wasn't dealing with a problem with the boat, from minor to serious.
It may be normal to have bugs on a new build, but the problems with this boat go way beyond that. And if it's true that two of the 4 builds have already lost
their rigs, that seems to be a serious design problem. Not good and if I was one of these pioneering owners I'd be freaking out right now.
