Default 10th scale AC Racing Sailboats

Is there any interest in 10th scale Americas Cup class racing sailboats? These would have a huge 6ft hull and scale working sails that can be trimmed with real sail geometry not just flat 2D sails. The total weigh would be about 48lbs ready to sail.

I have a friend who has developed such a sailboat and I'm interested in seeing if there is much demand for such an awesome vessel. About 25 have been made and sold and he can produce more if there is a demand. He sort of retired the project but I'm interested in it so I'm poking around to see who else is too.

Anyhow this is just to put it out there in the sailing community on this board and I can supply more info if there are serious inquiries.

Thanks,

Chris
