    Just another marketing ********...

    'While the thinner proa hull is only 35 percent thinner, its actual drag is approximately 50 percent less' - etc., etc.

    If indeed it tracks straight regardless of heading or sea state, it is a wonder of wonders.

    I'd also like to see how they handle open water with following seas, ect, tight manuvering situations with backing, turning and so on and when the throttle is chopped if it continues in a straight line or veers to one side.
    If they have no bad habits the designer might be on to something.
