For immediate release:
We have been making huge technological leaps in the production of the new iCat. We were inspired to go full carbon so as to take advantage of the stiffness and weight savings qualities of this material in order to add foiling boards and rudders. We have strengthened the beam saddles, transoms and daggerboard wells with longitudinal Kevlar in order to more efficiently distribute the massive loads that foiling will put on these structures.
We will be using foils (pictured) originally designed for the Hobie Trifoiler.

The rudders will have a flap control mechanism integrated into the carbon tiller much like the foiling Moth. Our goal is to make this the world's first single-handed foiling catamaran. Testing is currently under way, and video will be available soon.

Somehow (maybe the date), I'm a little suspicious of Jeremy's "press release".

From what I've heard, you'll be lucky to have your WildCat by HAVAMEGA.

There will almost certainly not be a WildCat class at HAVAMEGA.

I just looked at the calendar, I smell smoke, and I get the feeling someone's trying to blow it up my dress.

Jon,
Why are you wearing a dress? Things that tough in Oakland you making the trip across the bay to pick up a few bucks?
Thanks for the pentex sample. It is more Grey than blue I agree with you.

This is my regular gig. Why do you make it sound like a bad thing?

I'm convinced the foiling moth is the coolest sailboat ever made. Where can you even get one? What do they cost? All questions that I probably don't want answered, but man are they cool.

I'd give it up, but my pimp. . . er. . . wife has gotten used to the money I bring in, and I'd rather not get beaten for coming up short.

Come on Karl. An FX hardcore like you on a Moth? Just wait until this Foiling cat get's to the States. It may be a while...due to research and development...and whatnot.
