Earlier this week we featured the G4 foiling cat. Sailing circles around all the other boats in Caribbean bliss. Billed as a screamin' family cruiser, this boat seemed to have it all if you got a mil or two sitting around. Now this from yesterday.
Might want to rip up that contract you signed last week with Gun Boat and get a fast lead leaner instead. When you are on the cutting edge, prepare to get cut.

"Fantastic day of sailing ended with a dumb capsize.
Ticked that box of the test program too. Everything fine, mainsail only some broken battens, and my iphone didn't survive..
Need a quicker main dump valve on the hydraulics that's what we learned !
Only way to develop a great product even better is to test it ...."
R&D at it's best.
