    BlueBell Ahhhhh...

    Oh Doug, you're delusional.
    It comes off foil and is not shown simply flying right along as you so gayly profess.
    Enjoy your fantasy Doug.

    Nonsense-it's never "off the foil"-the foils develop lift all the time they're submerged-the rudder t-foils and mainfoil are capable of downforce as required. This boat has a unique foil system with a lifting foil on the daggerboard as well as the lee ama foil and two rudder t-foils in the water at the same time. Never even close to a pitchpole. If you looked carefully you saw the port bow re-emerge-if you didn't you weren't looking.
    She worked just exactly the way she was designed to work!
