Just love Madness, an inspiration t us all.
Having been intrigued by Proas for some time, I look forward to hearing how Madness performs.
One question on the design criterior. Is she designed for in-shore /coastal or out to sea? Those lightweight bulkhead look amazing, but at the small increase in weigth, could be watertight bulkheads. Is there any floatation foam? Any thoughts on the dreaded subject of capsize retrieval?
Interesting to hear you view on resitance of the rudder / boards to collision. On the subject I have considered, rather than placing the trunk centrally, it is against one side, such that the side of the hull is formed by the trunk. The whole held in by very strong elastic. Could actually be easier to build.
