Re: AC 72 crashes, 1 dead
My point seems to be misunderstood. I'm not suggesting that they engineer a boat that won't pitchpole. I would insist that they engineer one that would not do so catastrophically, therefore, reducing its potential to kill someone. Air bags, crush zones, better gas mileage, etc, were only engineered upon insistence. Someone pushed back on each as unnecessary or impossible.
