    Mono hulls? pfffffft

    OK I dont know if this is photoshopped or not but there is no reason to be , we all know Multihulls fly and that oyu only need around 16-18 knts to Ski, probably less with a wakeboard.

    The mono hull foilers are great but just try taking a few lovely ladies out wth you I dmuch rather go with the Beach cat and a few friends ;-)

    For speed freaks also chack out www.seaon.com these litte beauties will do 25kts easily.

    Moth's Up

    Nice image, Doug. Would you say this Moth goes through a planing phase on its way to being fully supported on its foils?

    When it's in that slender window with the boat partially supported by the foils and partially by the hull in its last throes of displacement mode, does that mean the boat is a planing design?

    Just wonderin'

    Moth planing

    Mothies claim the skinny foilless Moths plane but because of their high beam to length ratio and small inefficient planing area planing doesn't begin 'til around 15k. Foilers take off much earlier than that ....

    All these boats are extreamly fast and maneuvraable, but what are they doing then storm struks? what king of performance does these boats have in wavy seas? hidrofails are insuficient then boat is sailing slow..can sailboat sail fast when it hits a wave? No..That is the most extream offshore sailboat????

    Dead dead?

    You mean from planing, flying a Moth or going fast in a 60' multi?

    Going fast in heavy weather in a multi. Is that picture of a moth real? I figured it must have enhanced! If that's real I gotta get one of those!

    Moth Foiler

    Chandler, it's real and was taken in Singapore. Mark Robinson was giving kids rides, if I remember correctly, as part of some other event. Shows that you don't have to be a total lightweight to foil!

    ABN Amro

    You may have all seen this elsewhere, but this seems like the right thread for it.

    VOR Team ABN Amro did some wakeboarding behind their boat before Leg 1. Pretty sweet idea, and its a monohull
