Infiniti 36GT

DSS (dynamic stability system) has been mentioned here before. Here is the latest boat to incorporate this system, the Infinity 36GT. Looks sweet! The boats that use DSS usually have narrow or at least not very wide hulls. Paolo, what do you think about putting a system like this on a boat like the Pogo, but with less ballast? It would still have good initial stability thanks to the wide hull, and when the wind speed and boat speed increase, the DSS foil would kick in with its extra RM. The foil would be really far out from the center line and therefore have really good effect. I´m just babbling here, really don´t know what I´m talking about
