    I have one or two fairly close range photographs of the boat that I took on Friday afternoon.Sadly I brought the wrong cable to connect the camera to my laptop so can't upload them until I return home in a few days time.As you can see from the link, the foils are extremely wide and the hull itself is very flat in cross section.I was also a little surprised by the apparent minimal freeboard.It was interesting to compare the foils with those of Initiatives Coeur as the new boat has just a single fence at the inboard end and the well tried bot has several fences along each foil.

    Here we have the photographs I mentioned earlier.It continues to surprise me just how much space is beneath the hulls with the boats in their cradles.
