    Six Fly is a boat that is designed to accept two sets of appendices :
    Standard Version : (2 daggerboards and rudders 2 ) to navigate normally , as could make it a skiff, for its hull lines to glide.
    Version Foiling : (2 L and 2 centreboards rudders T) to rise from the water surface and foilear .
    Designed for two crew , without restriction of age or physical . This raised to be a simple boat to a dose of adrenaline who is anime.
    Something new and interesting is that it has movable ballast from side to side to adjust stability. It is built in Argentina .

    Just heard from one of the designers. This boat includes a movable ballast system that can move a variable amount of weight up to 180kgs(396lbs) side to side.
    Reminds me of my Crossbow but this thing has a lot more weight moving a much shorter distance.
