Lifting foils eh? On a Morrelli and Melvin NACRA 20 eh? Funny thing...I saw lifting foils on a bunch of A-cats just 2 days ago in Islamorada!!
Now- they don't call em lifting foils on these development class boats, but that is what they are...

That's very interesting because I asked Performance about that rumor and they said it wasn't true and that they were just moving to a new facility in the same town. They have in fact moved to the new building in Santa Ana.

I was told a couple of weeks before Xmas by someone who would know that Performance US were moving manufacture to Thailand. They were offloading all their excess gear at that time to move to a new site which was not set up for fibreglass manufacture. They had 3 sets of bare A2 hulls they were trying to flog at exhorbitant prices. Pretty funny really as the A2 hulls are way outdated.

scratch the lifting foils (for now). Update the sailplan and watch those things go!

Maybe that's why they told me that it was going to take 3 months to get new decks for my N20

Spot on Engineer - a lot of the excess US Performance gear was shipped to Brisvegas. Besides Ross and Warren just love dipping their hands in the resin!
