Yotphix...we only did modulation before the launch...after that all mods are done by testing and trials..that's why I'm allways on the sea when I'm to answer you, yes...we sailed her after, a lot!!!!

we're still a little far from optimal...and soon we will will all know when she gets to get loose!!!


Now...isn't it fantastic??? the speed, once the boat starts planning, around 8 kts...and she lifts off the wave...did you notice the smoothness, the fluttering on the hull stops??? Isn't it addictive???

I love when she starts "getting up"....its like breaking the sound barrier or something...I've had her at 17kts, so far, and a peak at 19!! and then the sea just rushe bellow the hull, and the whole thing becomes light, right???

That is what attracts me to it...I'd still cruise only one day, but for now...the feeling of going fast is absolutely undescrible...I cant explain....

I'm sure its as rewarding as cruising on a sunset like CD or TB do....

I just can't explain....and often people think we are noisy, loud and look weird...its absolutely the opposite...we're very calm, don't shout....and think twice...move know....but when we stop,,,we then get relief the valve!!! thus the idea people have of us...I guess
