    I've been concerned that since its taking so long on the WOLF project that someone may beat me to doing a small version of the Fire Arrow Foil System(the system used on most 100' trimarans-used first on the Fire Arrow).
    The critical elements are an adjustable lifting foil(capable of downforce) on the daggerboard, and a version of the TNZ foil on each ama plus at least one rudder t-foil.
    Other elements include the unique ,high dihedral ama hull / "curved piece" attachment with planing ama hulls.
    Please let me know if you run across anything like this under 20' LOA.

    One of the best 100' videos showing a system nearly identical to the Fire Arrow Foil System:
