I actually saw a Coyote one time, if I remember right, the mast had 2 or 3 spreaders. the hulls were amazing.
I have the section drawings of a Climax somewhere I found on a web page.

Thankfully it seems no one was injured while making this video !! but agreed .... PFDs are a must .... Watching the video has me pumped and ready to get the 18 sq back out for another FUN season of sailing .... wish more people would have the chance to sail one !! they are such an amazing boat !!! fast and simple uni rig !! much like the A-class just scaled up !!1

We have had Henry Bossett build a couple of new ACAT sails and they have looked real good. Since he made almost all my Square sails I'd bet he'd do another.

This video makes me cringe.

Not because of the boat. I't s fine example of a 18 flying around. Nice and fast boat.

What makes me cringe is the woefully inadequate equipment for the crew considering the conditions.

First wear some kind of buoyancy aid. I believe it is mandatory almost everywhere in the US for kids.

Then make sure your equipment actually fit and never let a meter of strap float away ready to be caught on something.

Don't sail barefooted. At least get an old pair of trainers. I've seen mangled foot from landing badly in a capsize: that's not pretty.

And I'm not even going into the long term issues like sleeve protection or the absence of decent hats or the lack of sunglasses for the young lady there.

But nice boat.

33 CFR 175.15(c) provides that no person may operate a
recreational vessel underway with any child under 13
years old aboard unless each such child is either wearing
an appropriate PFD approved by the Coast Guard or below
decks or in an enclosed cabin. If the child is observed
above deck without a PFD, then a violation has
occurred.

Hey JOHN , is Henry Bossett still with North ?? or on his own ?? My current LCD sail is AWESOME took a while to get battens to work well with it .. black magic carbon fine tuned work well .. would love to try a newer sail LOL just to see what it might do ... always loved the SQ top Goodall sails on my A class boats .. they would depower themselves in a gust and power back up and go ... Just hate the idea of buying a NEW sail for $$$$$ and find its a dud....
