Nothing personal Doug.
Foiling is growing and it would be better if you guys had your own forum, that's all.

Foiling

The problem with that is that foiling applies to every segment of sailing from windsurfers, to dinghies, to small multihulls, to the Americas Cup, to offshore ocean racing ,to monohull keelboats, to 100' trimarans and more.
You would have to double the size of the sailing portions of the forum to cover all of it's aspects.
Now, everyone is free to choose what topics they are interested in and to ignore the ones they aren't interested in.

exactly right. All those basic hull variants are spread out over the traditional forums. Better to gather all of them into one place. I imagine that foilers are more interested in the foils than they are about specific hull variants. One stop shopping instead of being spread out all over.

UptiP Foils

Thats simply not true. Any "slowness" as a result of the slightly(10 degrees) angled rig* could be remedied on a turbo version of the boat by simply using a canting rig while maintaining the advantages of the angle of heel relative to the use of UptiP foils.
The angle of heel greatly simplifies the handling of the boat.

* google "trimaran" and you'll see that the majority of tri's sail at an angle of heel......

UptiP Foils

Interesting that ALL(I think) of the new Ultim( 100' ) trimarans are using UptiP ama foils-mainly because these foils automatically maintain altitude with no or very little speed related variation. And most AC cats use a version of the UptiP foil:
