    She looks great. I will look forward to getting a few piccies of her going through Pompy Harbour entrance.

    I read that due to the new design, The foils haven't been fitted yet, so as not to give it away to the other competitors yet! I can't wait to see how it performs on the water.

    I suppose that a companion hatch will be fitted. The boat looks to be set up to scoop the bow wave into the cabin.

    A watertight lockable door I suspect.

    The cockpit will be self-draining, I assume through that big hole in the middle at the back.

    Makes sense, thanks.

    Are the rudders set up to kick back aft if they strike an obstruction?
    Perhaps the foils will be, too.

    The "hole in... the back" is an escape hatch for getting out when inverted, via a crawl space under the aft deck. It's a feature of lots of offshore designs, including all the IMOCAs, Mini 6.50s etc.

    Presumably the cockpit area under the pink coachroof will have lots of bits of string in it so would be quite hard to seal, I would guess there is a proper watertight door forward of that.

    Did I spy a tiller at 0:39 in Minn's video?

    maybe it's all steered from inside hence no proper cockpit and no protection from the waves that will be washing down the decks at 30 knots. It sure looks slippery.
