answering my own question

I'm likely the only one that doesn't know all about this stuff, but this is from a site about another supermaxi:

Maximusí keel is retractable which reduces her draft to 4 metres, and extends to 6 metres and is capable of being canted 50 degrees off centre to provide a massive righting moment.

chucklesR Take your basic sailing dinghy and blow it up x10. Then put on triple the crew a real boat takes just so you have movable ballast.

Boasun The point is the achievement of being in the Record Books.
But will he be the first private citizen to fly around the moon? Or even land on it?
