Re: MOD70 Trimaran Capsizes in Indian Ocean

These MOD toys seem pretty tippy. I have seen a handful playing turtle.

I like them anyways! Possibly the best sailing boats around.

Great discussion on the other foums, looks like a huge marketing backfire as they are now also contributing to the very issue they were pretending to be concerned about,...less rubbish in our Oceans
