actually the exchange rate has settled down pretty well. about $1.28 = 1 Euro. That beats the pants off of $1.65
This is not
a FXone hull shape. Its longer, the bows are different, the 2 deck panels on each hull are gone, and from the crappy 3D rendering pics it looks like its using a waaayyy longer board. It looks real similar from the pics, but I bet if you put the two side by side it would be really noticable.
People think the FXone is spendy, tack another $5k on the price and only stupid people like me buy them. I wouldn't hold my breath for a class to develop. Who know's though, A-cats aren't cheap and their 2nd in numbers only to probably the cheapest racing class the H16. (I don't really count waves, all though I should)
I also wish they would've picked a better name. iCrap is the first thing that comes to mind. Having a last name that is so easily associated with bouger and getting teased through childhood make me think on names.
I tried to duplicate the camera angle, but theres a wall in the way and I'm honestly too lazy to move the boat.
