Glad to hear those guys appear to be stable and OK!
I am noticing that some of these hull designs with very high freeboard required for the rougher conditions of some P-1 event locales and the apperance of their very narrow beams at the waterline coupled with the extra weight of the diesel engines and running gear may be making these boats more susceptible to rolling which may have been a contributor to this accident.
Not sure as I have not seen these hulls up close and personal but from some of the shots I've seen they seem to be pushing the limits of waterline length versus beam in an attempt to increase speeds?? The Bat boats are very successfull with this engineering but they use wing tips to stop the roll and they have lesser internal centerline weights. Just a thought, anybody have expierence here?
