Goto this link; http:

and download the "image re-sizer" ,then when you right click it gives you an option to re-size( 4 sizes to choose from) and put it in the same folder with the original without changing the original. I think someone on here turned me on to it it works great.
Or you can send them to me in an Email,and I'll shrink and post them. I'll PM you.

Maybe my perspective is skewed (It's been known to be) but that looks like a stock 20. The boards are interesting.

the picture does not show it correctly, but it is really wide, the cat track was clearly custom made and also the tiller bar was non-stock

I will go back tommorow to take some additional pictures [5 minutes drive]

Are the hulls shaped different from the current Nacra 20?

The guy in the brown teeshirt is Bobby Kleinschmit, who works at Morelli and Melvin. He lives about five blocks from me. Good to see he's still getting out and about and his Moth project hasn't turned him into a mushroom.

From what I can tell in those pics, they are 20 hulls strapped to a wide beam - and yes, I'm very interested in those boards.

Thanks.

Those are the banana boards used on the M20s, I would be surprised if they would actually use those though.

Maybe its because its early, but that does not look like a 3m beam to me.
Friend of mine sails a 3m wide Fox and you can easily tell the difference, but this does not look extra wide.

Tony: It might not be 3m but its definitely wider than a standard 8'6" beam.

I'll call Trizzle.. he'll know all about it.

just came back from Nacra Europe, talked to the guys in the shop:
The 20 ft which is on the picture is used as a test platform for a /the new boat

it is almost 3mtr wide/ they said that the new boat will be even wider!!

the dagger foils are not the M20's but close and they are experimenting with these foils
"
I saw a couple of masts which they are testing with- huge

they refer to the boat internally as babyzilla, when I asked why, the response was that the boat will win any pissing contest on the beach and on the water and will come standard with bragging rights

Were the mast carbon or aluminum?

The big trophy goes to fastest corrected time, and the Clock goes to fastest elapsed time...what's the "Overall Trophy"?

The big trophy. The same one it's been from the start, based on corrected time.
