    Congratulations on your boat.
    Really sweet.
    Not to be too critical, but it looks like a bigger ama (deeper) and higher akas would easily allow higher speeds.
    What do you think?

    Yes bigger amas with more volyme with centerboard in the ama would give higher top speed. And a longer boat would be even faster. But then its not the same boat. For 2019 i have lots of improvements coming up. Furling jib. New Code0. And other things. But its a long winter here. I will post when something cool is ready :) I need to make the boat little little more safe and more handle to be allowed competing in some sail race here.

    Thanks Dolfiman - I do like this boat very much, even though it misses my criteria of two people carrying it up the beach!
