Re: Paradigm changing boats

Herreshoff's early multihull Amaryllis (1876) should have moved heaven and earth -- and would have, had the reactionary fools of the yawt-ting set not reacted so violently to it.




Modern, much?!?! After the design's suppression, it really wasn't until Tabarly's Pen Duick IV that ocean-racing multis stormed back to the fore.



Guess what Tabarly was working on in 1976?



Could be the next paradigm shift.
