It does look more difficult to launch from the beach compared to the 'L' foils.

The foils fully retract to the hull surface for launching and landing....

Like those foils could become "ankle biters" if you're not careful?

(this from a guy who still gets "bit" on the shin by the dang trailer hitch... you'd think I'd have learned by now)

How do you insert the boards when you are on the beach?
Won't the T foil break when you pull the boat on its side (assuming they enter from the bottom).

It weighs 75kgs.......you get someone to lift the bows or stern on the beach and insert from below.......designer is going to do a video this weekend of the whole process.....

It only eliminates sailing Uni if you have no friends at your sailing club.....

Ah,that makes sense. Missed the part about it weighing 75kg.
Hope you bring it to Texel next year.

I'm thinking stick em in before it even comes off the trailer. And certainly before you rig it. Boards would probably be the first thing to go in.


I'm boatless.

That thing is exactly what we need.

It's already in your color, Karl. Brilliant choice, if that doesn't attract attention, nothing will...

Make sure the rigging at the top of the stick is squared away before you put the boards in. No flipping that bitch over on her side on the beach.

A set of chocks designed for the boat could solve that problem.

With the light weight, it's probably possible to tip it over on the bows.

This is so excellent.
I'm predicting that many boats will be made and sailed with foiling design in the next few years.
Sorry Nacra- but your half so designs so far don't touch this- yet. Nacra?
Still not predicting earthquakes, or anything about the temperature though.
