A response to Siri & centerboard.

Since we all know a single hulled catamaran (windward out of water) is much faster than both hulls in, I have dcome up with the thought of allowing the centerboard to let the hull tilt "slightly" - and only enough to allow windward hull to rise from water. Have come up with a way to restrick degree of sideways centerboard movement to (roughly) 10 degrees which should allow windward hull to rise free of water, but not far enought to provided added momentum to capsize to the side.

Again - kind of busy and refocused at the moment - but when time permits I will try to mock-up my idea.
