Identity Crisis!

Below is a photo of Dinah as she looks at the moment. The poor girl is completely naked, having had all her antifoul and hull markings removed.

In the next few weeks a very difficult decision has to be made… What will she look like for 2011? The graphic designers are working away coming up with ideas, and I’m torn between making minimal changes from the look we’re all used to, or doing something drastic and bold.

Either way, work continues making sure her underwater profile is perfectly fair. It’s backbreaking work filling and sanding every little scratch and chip, but strangely rewarding all the same. I justify the aches and pains with the thought that even a 0.01knt increase in boatspeed will have a significant impact over the longer races in the schedule. Time will tell I guess!
