New Zealand: 'DYI' 20 Foiler by Bruce Beca / Fast Fibres

First drawings of this 20 feet foiler were sent by Bruce in Nov 2014. No the platform is finished and looking good, I like the carbon beams shape. On the foils I think further developed 4pt setup will be the new standard, so any new built I would consider cases able to fit A-Class 'Z' board type. Also he is planning to sell plans & parts, check comments by Bruce:
"Down under at the mini monster garage, I've been putting the basic platform together. At Fast Fibres Tauranga NZ, I'm building our first working prototype. Carbon/foam hulls and carbon beams are obviously complete now. Some good visual progress out of the shop, while behind the scenes I'm working hard to finalise the foil moulds and mast too.

Once our testing program is complete, builders/sailors will be able to buy plans and parts for their own DIY Foiler
I’d like to hear from Cat sailing news followers who would be interested in building from themselves or others this kind of Cat.

Thanks very much!
