There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

My point was, you can have all the design experts in the world but that does not guaranty that you will get everything right.

Pretty much mirrors my thoughts Rehab...

 

Forgot to mention that he / the boat will probably, in addition will have the latest sail tect, Michel Desjoyeaux, electronic tell tales connected to computers and synchronised with the computers that would control the sail trimming programmes [ Trim Control ] and all the other programmes. 

 

Michel Desjoyeaux is one of the most successful solo offshore sailors in the world. He not only won the Vendee Globe twice he also won the Route du Rhum as well as numerous other offshore races. Now semi-retired from offshore racing he has a company in France called Mer Agitée. Desjoyeaux and his partner Régine Bornens created Mer Agitée in 1999 to bring innovation to the sailing world. Their latest product, an electronic telltale is pure genius. Working with the engineer Dimitri Voisin, Mer Agitée devised an elegant digital solution called Trim Control, these are digital tell tales.

 

More details can be found here for those that are unaware of such technology, be interesting to see how many Auckland boats get them.

 

Could be worth while for IT to get the NZ sole distribution agency,

 I never said there was any guaranties.  There is never any guaranties as far as life is concerned except death.

I am constantly amazed at this new tech, just need to remember that like F1 cars the average guy probably couldnt even drive a lap of the countdown carpark and the cars themselves are on a different planet to your moms swift. As for the $$, well we all know that there is no limit to the amount of cash you can pour into a race boat.

The hull shape transitions are pretty complex.
