I see they went ahead and came up with one. It could have been so much better. I recall the design brief called for something besides cross tubes, but they did that anyway. They sure should have looked into Rafi’s Cat2Fold system.
One of the biggest faults of the original I thought was that it had berths, one per side, that were some 13′ long and about 2′ wide, or close to that. That always seemed useless to me. I offered them flared hulls with enough inside room to sleep two, the right way. What I see is a wide transom that gets wider fast above the waterline. That will promote pitching in waves. Maybe it was not intended for waves.
I see it has a prod to hold up the bow net. That is easier to break down, but once the mast is down, you have nothing holding the lot up.
They did do a belly pan instead of tramp between the hulls. I don’t see how they will origami it, if they will. Again, Rafi worked out a way to fold those up, and in carbon, they’re not too heavy.
I thought mine looked friendlier also. I don’t see any designer’s name mentioned in the advertising, so I’m guessing the whole call for designs thing was actually a call for ideas, like I suspected. (Normally I can edit image size. Word press changed without me knowing it and no longer will allow resizing photos. I will have to look into that.)
