    Hello ,

    I am attaching Luigi Colani America's Cup Yacht picture.

    That design blows my mind.

    What do you think about it ? What would be the dimensions of smallest size of this boats scale for 1 person ?

    I am thinking to build one of thems scale but I dont know what keep it float , what keep it dive to the sea nose down ?

    Best ,
