Yeah sorry but it does have reverse sheer and a kiddy slide transom a bit like Steve Thompson’s ride from the 80sAttached File  9216C25F-D0E7-421F-A640-FB84FD398B11.jpeg   1.47MB   1 downloadsAttached File  E7078678-1BD3-45BE-ABC3-10830016A981.jpeg   1.43MB   1 downloads

Steve Thompson’s next Elliott boat was the mighty 10.5 I think which has pretty crazy reverse sheer but looks damn pretty....

Unusual shape above foil entry point. Not sure what its for, but its an area of high load....

And a VERY high aspect rudder. Could be a control issue??

 

And not just above the foil. Note the cradle shape here... https://www.facebook...?type=3

Must be the first America’s cup boat ever to have lifelines. What’s up with that?

Probably H&S requirements to avoid shore crew being clipped on deck while it's out of the water

Ok, now I see, the indentation above the foil is to allow the foil to be raised. It’s on some sort of tubular axle...

Very cool, I see they have two different foils installed, one has angled "wings", some interesting geometry around the transition from arm to winglet too... looking forward to seeing it sail.
