Hi Bill
Perhaps because as a manufacturer he was able to fit a three track headsail foil, not work a system around two tracks.

I have one question. I wonder why Henri Amel did NOT do it that way?

Bill,

   Thanks,  I hope that it does work!  I will update the group once I have used it for a while to find out.

James,

For what it’s worth, I really like your idea about the looped halyard. Simple and elegant.  Wish I had thought of it :)  Maybe you can market it to all those “other boats” who have twin track foils! :-)

I don’t think we have seen ANYTHING in the basic design of our boat that we would change.  Almost all of the minor tweaks in execution we have made, or contemplate, are things that Amel had already changed by the time they got to building the 54.
