This boat is ready to go and kick some Giu a**. At 12in long shes unstoppable. Carbon fiber sails and graphite mast, super smooth lexan hull for amazing speeds breaking 2 knots!!!!! heavy bulb keeps her very stable and she can turn 360 in 16in!!!! Mess with her and see what happens.
Made in Australia, Assembled in NY!!!

No boom vang? How will you adjust the sail shape? :)

Very nce. Post some pictures of her in some BFS. Let's see her in some wind and waves.

Nice looking craft. Pleasing lines for her size.

But

How long till you lose the sails? The material seems to be aligned wrong and no reinforcement! :)

The "secret weapon" of US sailing is revealed - hence the reason no invite to the America's Cup and the pending court battles.

Now THAT'S a keel. It's deeper than the boat's LOA :D:D

She does have a boom vang and the reason the sail is shaped so weird is cuz the mast got snapped in the building process and its now shorter and when I get a new mast ill slip it back in but the sail is crunched due to the shortened mast. And the sails are very strong, dont know the exact material but its almost like they took nylon string and criss crossed it and put it through a laminater. Just finishing the sheeting system now and will take for a test sail when the new mast comes in.

Neat Footy!!

Loks like a 570, I was about to order one as a travel RC boat for our sailing vacations.

Let us know how she sails, I ended up ordering an RC Skiff that requires Rc hiking from the UK, no ballast in the centerboard at all!!

I plan on experimenting with foils to get her up and screaming like the flying Moths!!

This otta be fun with a cold one in my hand at anchorages:
