With every thing moved back a little, is it being set up for Australian Conditions? I can assure you he probably hasnt sailed in my lake conditions, you know, very light, shifty, light and variable....
Will the boat be faster if you sail mostly light air stuff, or will it be better in waves, chop, and the 15-20 Australian stuff?

Ed, I trapped low all weekend, only because my new trap system allowed the stopper ball to pull thru the stopper knot giving me about 5 more inches of trap line. Just enough to not be able to reach my handle to get back on the boat! Sweeeet!
Dave, Thanks for the laugh! I've been there too!

Can everyone please stop writing "more volume below the waterline". The only way to get more volume below the waterline is to make the boat heavier.

would seem that time is here already, try LR2/LR3 ACATS for larger versions of the attached images
The chine appears to run from the centercase to the transom curving upwards from beneath the waterline.
According to the site, the hull is only 10" wide and will be launched next week.

Harry,
Its going to be pretty difficult for you to keep Tony a secret when he's posting every step of his new build on the USACA website.

I just read on Ashby Sails' website that the new Ashby A-cat is finally on sale (it seems that the refining work on the prototype's completed).

The new boat named ASG3 differs from the prototype for the foils (new rudderblades and curved boards) but I wonder if the other anticipated changes:
- Rig and front beam back 300mm
- Rear beam back 100mm
- Foot shorter by 200mm
- Head bigger by 200mm
- Forestays back 250mm
- Sidestays back 300mm
- Centreboards back 150mm
- Transom bigger at waterline by 25mm
- Transom higher by 12mm
- Deck at bow narrower by 30mm
- Freeboard in bow lowered by 80mm
are confirmed or not.
Is there anyone who knows?
