Nice. Do you ever fly a hull with that?

I used to have a Stiletto 27, so I know the feeling. I miss her.

The trouble is it looks too easy. I took a couple out on sea trials when I sold her and they had to stare at the GPS to beleive the speed numbers I was giving them. When the water is flat it's just easy.

The new AC72s sure don't look like they're doing 35 knots... but they are.

I mean I don't see rooster tails so, you could have been going 5 knots from what I saw :)

How wet is the boat when there's some chop?

Looks like fun but why is the one guy wearing a floating cushion on his back? Seems like if he went over that would make it harder to swim than not having it on. Also seems it would hold his face under water.

Other than that it looks like a lot of fun. I am not familiar with the boat looks cool.

Hahaha thats my DAD, the winds at the beach were blowing in the 30s he was worried about going out on my boat, he is a MONO sailor! I asked if he wanted a Life jacket, i tried to tell him its ok, but i am still a little scared of her yet i like it that way. :) After all this being first season with this type of boat, has its learning curves.

The boat was wet this day i was getting Wet from bow splashes and sprays and Stern. The boat Flys a Hull real Easy i just think my 30 year old sails need replaced ! So i am looking into that. Dont know much about which sails to go with i got a Quote for Dacron sails. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
