Idealist, as i said thats a fairly impressive project you've taken on, I will be watching your build log with interest.
TBK, I have found a excellent source of foil assist info via a few of our fellow builders who very kindly pointed me in the right direction.
First off is a pic attached of the foil from the new Banque pop 40mt tri- secondly this link , http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showtopic=82807&st=0&start=0[/url]
is brilliant and up to date...I had to register to veiw the attached pics..well worth the effort. Sure is a lot of pro's and cons to foil assist MINI 40's but I cannot help but think this multi development has a very long way to go yet, so at this point I am definately going to experiment with foil ideas.
Thirdly this link, has an enormous amount of sound techical information on foils, http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/sai...sign-2447.html
By the way.. build update; I am putting another coat of primer on my hulls tommorrow, have cut transoms back to desired angles and faired up gunnel line, also built a couple of cradles for the hulls by laminating a layer of glass over plugs...will post a few pics in a few days.
