Thanks Stewart, the curiosity was getting to me ;D

The pictures quality are good enough to see what a different direction Think has taken. For those that havent seen it yet the LEGEND hull looks like a normal type ski front that morphs into a nearly flat bottom hard chined rear end. Looks very fast like it could get up on the plain.

Stewart if you havent had a chance to take it in the ocean..maybe Willy can answer

With that hard chine how is the transition between primary and secondary stability, coping with direction changes and cross chop to the rear.

How about posting some pics? As a 14' skiff sailor I have a thing for hard chines.

This is what Willy said:

Cant fault it, fastest boat i have ever been in. Linked up run after run so easy.



So I guess the direction changes weren't a problem for him. He commented on how stable the ski was, as did everyone who demoed it at the weekend, from low to intermediate paddlers, to one of the top racers in Australia.

Can we attach photos here?


I don't have them online to link to. More than happy to e-mail them to anyone who wants them though.

Hi all,

I have not seen the pictures that Stew has shot yet, but I imagine they make the hull look pretty flat.

This is an illusion created by the hard chines, as the hull actually has a gently curved cross section between the chines. In fact it is not as "flat" as a competitors hull. This curve allows the paddler to easily control the attitude of the boat, and not be forced into fighting a flat hulled boats tendancy to stay square to the surface of the water.

The hard chines offer tons of secondary stability, and once up and running offer better release, making the boat nice and slippery for linking runs together.

Best regards,

Daryl
