Re: AC 34 - What If?

I like Omatako's idea. 45's with foils. I just can't get over how tall these boats are. They just don't seem to resemble even slightly many of the boats that Joe Budweiser owns at his harbor in, say, Monterey, Ca.

I guess they shouldn't. They're kind of the Le Mans cars of the water. But there should at least be some likeness in size to the most common boats out there, I'd think.

As far as monos vs. cats, to me they are quite different beasts, but I like them both. In al reality, though, noone can expect to go back to monos, I don't think.

And now, to tab on over to the WMRT and see what's up withthat series, if anything.
