One thing that was learned in testing the model is that in waves it would be ideal to be able to lower the ama foils from their standard position. Out of the question on the Test Model because of the extra weight and radio complication.
But on Wolf it should be a simple thing to do, so the Concept Model will reflect UptiP ama foils that can be lowered around a foot(.3m). The rake of the ama foils will be adjustable but probably not the cant. I want the foils to be simple to sail with with the fewest regular adjustments possible. One thing that is unique about the ama UptiP foils on the Test Model and on Wolf is that they don't have to be retracted/deployed every tack or gybe like the UptiP foils on the AC cats, Flying Phantom, GC32, NACRA FCS 20 and others.
I'm still thinking about having a recess in the main hull to allow the daggerboard foil to be retracted above the bottom. That will leave a hole in the bottom which may be able to be dealt with using foam or? So it fills in automatically as the foil is lowered. The daggerboard foil will use a flap adjusted by a wand-either one like the Whisper*
or similar to the dual wand set-up on the Test Model(below).
The rudder T-foil will pull straight up and clear the transom/bottom intersection. *See the Whisper wand system on page 165, post 2463
