This was referred to as canard at the Miami boat show, so assumed that was correct.
you got it exactly right... not bad for an okie....

Wrong again! That's two days in a row. You're going to have to do better tomorrow. These photos were taken from the 2003 Ft. Lauderdale race. The front cancard could be set for automatic attitude control or manual for JT to operate. Testing this and a couple of other items is the reason we settled with what is on my turbine boat.
