Looks a bit similar to some of the proto-type pictures of the Voodoo-skiff....... but the NZL on the sail indicates its probably a 12????

When do you think you'll have the boat sorted out Andy? Will be interesting to see if you can keep the nose up on her.

Duno when itll be fully rigged - gota attatch the new carbon spreaders to the mast, straight!! stiffen up the 14ft fixed pole and add diamonds etc to it (courtesy of my old broken holt carbon tiller extension), and make a fancy foil shaped striker which is the vertical support in the water on the pole, carbon it all on together. SERIOUSLY strengthen the base of the pole 10cm forward of the snout as this will be where the new jib tack will attatch!   Hopefully by the Grand slam, if not - then deffinately by the Cherub Nats, as well as my 6ft skiff! muwhahaha

But Aqua doesnt nosedive- that was my old cherub, only pitch poled her once ever! and that was in 30 knots as we came down the wrong side of a wave, bearing away and floggin the kite - all lead to disaster! hehe. Oh and by having a bigger kite, it lifts the bows a lil higher! tiz alllll good! Still on the hunt for an SB3 kite tho...............

ps dennis - the sail on the 12 I posted last, its from an A class cat, look it up - they are the BEST single handers (please that wasnt a dig at the lasers, vareos, phantoms, RS smod like vessels, just my view as a human - I think?!?!?)

Are we sure thats a 12 in that A-class rig picture?

Shape of the foredeck and 2 crew on the wire says yes but I dont think ive ever seen a 12 with racks (aqua doesnt count andy, shes not there yet) looks more like a 14 to me...
