It’s one thing to bench test ,making it work in the boat will be another.
The bespoke test rig is a monster piece of engineering and the loads at the business end must be phenomenal.

It's getting to the stage it's not worth holding. $100 million from the  Gov't for what. If another withdraws how many o/s Spec boats will there be to off set the $100 million. Also it's going to be a very short Regatta. That please a lot of boaties. The harbour will not be restricted for very long.

Though worth holding and worth funding are two different things. It only takes two boats to have a match and decide a winner.

 

Under the agreement with the government they lose funding if fewer than 3 challengers make it.

 

If I had my way, there would be no government funding regardless of how many show. In the end the real ROI the government is looking for is votes.
