G4 Foil Stress Test @Holland Composites

The G4 is being sent to St Marteen to arrive March 26. The big question mark of this milestone boat for the industry will be its foils and a safe ride.

Comments by PJ: "At Holland Composites BV we did this bend test on the G4 big lifting foil. 4600 kgf is a lot on a tip of a board I can tell you. Pretty scary to load it up like this , but no sign of any problem at all!
Looking forward to the first sea trials of the G4 in two weeks!"
