Not that I know anything but I was always under the impression that rounded surfaces were stronger.

The triangle is the strongest geometric shape. Triangles are very hard to distort from their normal shape because of their fixed angles and ability to distribute force evenly to the other sides. This force is then transferred to adjacent triangles.

Thanks for the clarification. Maybe something for the other canopy builders to look at.

Noli, I have not seen anything mentioned about this hull after the first one was built. Did the design not perform as expected?

the cat just fell off from public's eyes. Wish they would show more on the Hypercat.

I agree. Swecat was supposed to run one in the XCat series but they dropped out of it. Too bad because the market for this size cat hull is crazy right now and I like the style of it.
