Chat with Tricky to make a few mods and then race it next year in endurance (with some success)to prove it has got some offshore creditability then you may stand a chance of a buyer ... or ship it to the USA where they may be a bit more prepared to experiment

I think the 6 litre boats are running much faster these days!

I am sure the 3 pointer has been pitched against it's 6ltr rivals in the UAE and was found to be somewhat slower than the cats, without looking it up I think they weigh in around 2150KG which the racing RS6 achieves, so perhaps it's best chance is of winning in more challenging offshore conditions such as the UK endurance events or perhaps in the USA race scene

If the rules are changed to allow multihulls. The Blades were excluded from the Round Britain because they were deemed to be multihulls, though it's always been described by Lorne as a 'stabalised monohull'.

I had heard that the stabalised monohull 'could' be reconsidered for future endurance events, but nowt definite.

The RB may be understandable given most multi-hulls should have canopies and they were banned form the RB, but I had not realised events unfolding such as the re-established CTC and the may be (entries permitting) Needles Trophy and hopefully a few others still had the tri/cats on the not invited list

The thread I posted about the cheap Cougar cat for the CTC would I assume also be on the uninvited list which does seem a bit crazy given the times this style of Cougar cat has mad the run in the CTC even if it was only one way at a time back then

I particularly like that Lorne statement (Stabilised Mono)

Cheers

Tricky is too biased for reasonable comment.
Thanks to all replies,
Any suggestions in the emirates, I.E. BROKERS ETC WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

I was talked out of allowing the Bladerunner style boats for the RB08 by several people far more qualified to know than I. However, I personally feel now that "stabalised monohulls" of the "Bladerunner" concept (with or without canopies) should be allowed in for all endurance races during the 2009 racing season and will be sorting this out with my colleagues and the RYA over the next few weeks. Sooner than later. If it is true that racing improves the breed then perhaps long distance offshore racing might prove to everyone, one way or another, whether or not "stabalised monohulls" can handle this type of fast, deep water running in all sea conditions. The Poole Cherbourg Poole Race in May would be a good starting point for them.

Out of interest ML will that also include Cats for the endurance style events ... going back to the Lorn Tri I still think it was really only Neil Holmes that showed they could run with the cats and beat them, although as I have said in past posts it was the smaller 28' version he raced and I think it was the aluminium tri that was sold off to France, would be interesting to know if it's had any further success since then in their offshore racing series, and what of the 55' RB tri how would that fair in it's sea keeping abilities to either a 55' mono or cat, I wonder what lessons Lorn has learnt through the years with his passion for the tri hulled boat
