Fill the wing with helium....


So. How much money is uncle larry going to have to shell out to get this beastie back on the water? Any guesses?

What did he spend on the last AC, something like $360M wasn't it? I have buyers remorse spending $200 on a pair of jeans. lol


I'm boatless.

Somewhere I read this boat cost about $10 Million. Peanuts to Larry.

Oh, but you can still use your $200 jeans...right?

I don't think so he seems to have a duty problem.

Is that supposed to be Karl?

And all this time I thought it was the crew of Oracle 17 abandoning the boat!

He just bought our neighbor island for $500-600 mil. The repair cost will probably come out of his walkin' around money.

I can't even fathom that level of wealth. The man plays at a level that basically beyond comprehension.

After watching the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drgglIebuQY) I think they buried the windward bow first. Can anyone confirm my observation?
If this in fact happened it is possible that someone just dialed too much angle of attack to the leeward foil or not enough AoA to the leeward one.

I have it on a relatively high authority that after the big wave of water rushed over the deck, there were only 2 people left on the boat for the ensuing pitchpole.

The trimmer said, "as the bows went down, I crawled as far forward as i could.

- I guess it's the same on all boats... it's the crews fault we capsized.

No kidding - they sure put that new flexible chrome vinyl to the test. That stuff is about $1,600 in material alone to do an F18.
