Giu,
Those are cool boats, but they had serious issues with the canting keel and the support structure around it. When you said that was the same mold as Pirates I cringed a little bit. Pirates had issues that made them limp into port a few times. Also, I think that Movistar was the same as Pirates and that one (Ericsson?), and Movistar sank during the NY to UK leg of the last race. Movistar lost it's keel completely. Something to think about when you're doing 25Kts in a monohull. Are those guys going to be in the next Volvo?

Dictated, but not read.

When you get a ride don't forget to take Fred. It's a chance of a lifetime.

Life is an adventure so get on with it.
