Interesting Catamaran Project, but what is it?

Any thoughts on what this is.

Kinda crazy and I kinda like it...

Just saw that a really nice Unicorn sold for just £360 on ebay. God I hate being broke :-(

Good Grief!!!

That's not a catamaran, it's a floating road bridge!

Its a Hoot!

Actually I'd be interested to know if Dougall would like it as much as the Devoti D1 he trashed in Como! :twisted:

Its got the same old man's armchair arrangements for the helm!

With those foils and all perhaps its an entry level desighn for the "little" americas Cup :shock:

Gosh, this is all a tad harsh! It was an ac of selfless sacrifice, think how good it is that people can thrash their D-Ones secure in the knowledge that they're not about to fire shards of carbon fibre and harken ball bearings everywhere!

And anyway...I was only obeying orders!

And less of the "old man's armchair"; those wings are so comfortable and kind to be knees, but still demand a modicum of effort to get onto!
