Doug Lord: Foiling_Keelboat-rough_sketch_6-20-11_003

Conceptual sketch of a 30' full flying hydrofoil keelboat. Would be self-righting. The boat does not sail with a "normal" angle of heel-either sailed level or "veal heeled" to weather 30 degrees when on foils. This results in more RM, unloading the main foils and less chance of vertical strut/rudder ventilation. Electronic altitude control with back up wand.
