    I think he is talking about the boat I posted further up in this thread. I mostly posted it because I was impressed how wet they got ... not a comfy boat to sail on a chilly night.

    How many of us are willing to foil the night away?

    My apartment in Miami Beach flooded, I bailed about 200 gallons 54 buckets while she blew through. Next time a bilge pump is in order. The House in Big Pine Key, which is right about where she came on land, looks pretty good by satellite pics. My house in red, the house right past mine got spun, it used to be parallel to road. house.jpg

    Yes- the now DNA F4 is the previous gunboat G4 as shown here including its inglorious capzise :) it uses the uptip foils as similar to the AC72 series boats from the 2014 2015? americas cup... harldy a cruising boat by amy stretch of the imagination...
