The designer stated on the video if you get tired you can sail it in displacement mode, doesn't appear to be a dagger/centre board, foils appear to completely leave the water when retracted.

Hardly a feature is it, otherwise I'm guessing we would be talking swamping or sinking?  Generally things which are claimed to work in two dramatically different modes do neither very well.

Never foiled, is it more tiring than displacement sailing?

You probably didnít notice it, there appears to a a dagger board in front of the mast, look at video at about 50seconds. Probably not as odd as it sounds as there is probably a lot of rudder area in displacement mode.

I work in product development and I always think that the KISS principle is useful. It stands for Keep It Simple Stupid. From what we can see here I donít think this guy has ever heard of it!
