Nevertheless if i look at her hull now, it reminds me strongly on the boats i posted previously - v shaped hull with the chines more or less used as lifting strakes...
Downwind about the lift I agree 100%. Upwind, when heeled, the leeward chine will be underwater most of the time, so it will not work, but I guess this will not be detrimental to the performance on such a narrow hull.
