so who built the Green one and I'm guessing the French one is from Dennis? this is getting rediculous it looks like it's going to be a one boat event at the races

Na Toni, don't get confused that boat is mine!!!.Been sailing it now a few weekends up against my Lintel an it certainly holds it's own,the Lintel still seems to have the edge in the gust at the very top,but this boat is more all round and holds it's performance throughout the wind range of a race a little bit better,they are very very close it usually boils down to who makes the mistake.Not sailed it in any light air because we ain't got none.

Looks good Olivier. Mine is from Pepe... it wasn't quite finished in the photos, but is now. We got our wires a bit crossed with the colour, at least it's different !

Toni, that is why truly there are different strokes for different folks. I love that color blue, and the fact that Denis painted the bulb in the color of the hull was awesome! The man can make a model boat....

Well Jeff, that is an interesting shade of good old Irish green!!! I like it, though!!

The boats are so nice aesthetically that it's hard to imagine a BP that's not pretty, regardless of the color scheme.
