I heard that the boat didn't actually roll - just went up one one side and came back down?
It went completely over and landed right side uip after coming down hard on its starboard side.

This boat had the least amount of power in the race, and was also the biggest. the 40 platinum had more power then it. Bacardi had about 700 hp more. 160+ with 1350's NA is Dog slow? The new one handles better and is better balanced. Not sure why you would think the old tencara was better.

I saw the boat run at key west and loto. The old boat went faster at loto and had a chance to win at key west before it came apart last year. Maybe the will get it dialed in better.

Yep, just wait til they get her dialed in better, it will be something to see, probobly the only thing to be seen will be the transom as everyone chases it!

Seriously, the boat doesn't have alot of test time, because it came out of the mold late in the spring of 05', and Callan had to rig it electrically and mechnically for both torques, and the turbines. Very complex electrical system design involved with supporting both powerplants. It will be very interesting next year when the C50 has so more test time under her belt.
Happy Holidays,
Dean
