    Owen Clarke Design has helped us out with a bulb design:


    We're confident that they have the knowledge on a modern bulb design. We haven't decided on whether to add a bulb to the excisting keel or to builb a new slim-keel - as seen on the new m34.

    Anyway we're a bit short on time this winter, and we've decided to push the keel-project to either later this year or in the end of the year.

    We're working on reinforcing the boat with Kevlar and carbon - and also applying a very thin layer of fiber to give the boat a perfect result.
    Take a look here if you're interested

    We've added a google translate feature on our website.

    Thank you everyone for your feedback - keep it coming :)
