    Thanks again! Are you the designer builder? In light of some recent events the "anti-canting keelers" will have a field day with that boat name!
    Good Luck and thanks for posting!

    Thanks very much, Steve-and my apologies-don't know how I could have omitted such a pioneering boat.

    Love your model trimaran - i posted the only comment last time i checked, unbelievable the lack of things people find "more interesting" nowadays. Does Hydroptere count as "canted keel" ? technically it should.

    Thanks. Hydroptere uses movable water ballast pumped from the rudder to either ama as required-no keel though.....

    But the foils are only thing in the water? the real "keel" is usually out of the water. Can't call them high aspect ratio keels...hmm . I'll take your word for it.
