    Thx John.

    Christian, this is pretty obvious, i think it was already claimed as illegal in this thread [​IMG]

    Christian,

    You must also look at hydro hull classifications in the rule book to see if items like this make the boat a hydro. Example..........on page K4 of Technical Standards second paragraph under HYDRO HULL DEFINITIONS AND RESRICTIONS in the IMPBA rule book it states in section F .... Hydrofoil Suspension hulls.........

    Hydrofoil suspension hulls will have a hull which may be, but is not restricted to, a monoplane style that is lifted free of the water when operated at speed by skis or foils which are secured to the hull with struts. What you have is an appendage with skis, so it would fall into the hydro class.

    Heo,
    John, we talked about tabs last year.
    I have some issues with my hull and working on different options. Simply driven by the intrinsic issue of a mono regarding its lift and some cog issues and on the other hand not willed to redo the whole cnc machined negative form.
    The other options (rebuilt moving cog or elongate driveline) are way more critical regarding mechanical robustness and riding stability as this twin layout involves some pretty high risks of instabilities down the straights.

    This is how the described 5" tab in the center will be mounted.
    You confirm that it is legal?
    If yes i make it potentially more then a test and more robust.
    Do not want to waste time for non legal stuff :)

    Thanks in advance
    Ralf

    Hi Ralf,

    Somebody on my Youtube channel saw a picture of your SAW record run and asked me how long is your mono. Fun times at Legg Lake for sure !!
