Yes, we are anxious in waiting for some "hot" impressions about new Apollo, particularly regarding its "early planing" qualities...

No one has tested it apart Remi and Starboard team?

I'm curious about its performances just in that point (about 12-13 knots) when other Formula boards like 161 should be better than Apollo...

Awaiting that some person with fine feeling will post his impressions about Apollo, I send a simple visual comparison between Apollo and 161.


Apollo - 161 upper deck comparison:




Apollo - 161 tails comparison:




All measures are in centimeters.

Hi Expander,

I think their is a mistake on the web and in your post for the tail :

The Appolo is 84,5 and the F161 is 81cm.

All the best

Hi Remi,

I hope they will correct the mistake on Apollo web page about its real tail width.

Anyway, it follows another comparison between Apollo and other brands Formula boards; all boards are drawn at same scale.


-- PLEASE, SEE COMPARISON IMAGE IN MY FURTHER LATEST POST --



Regards,

Hi expander,

I like your focus and summary graphic detail. While I'm not a formula sailor, I really think that you've presented an insightful, and in my opinion, a interesting comparison of current outline shapes. A presentation that I'm sure that many insiders may take note of. Overall, if I could venture a request, I would also like to see Mike Zajicek's L6 and L7 designs represented too, if only because I respect him so much.

Of particular interest, the decidly parallel outline of the Starboards appears to highlight a different design concept from others the market. Being the leading designer brand with the top racing results, an unquestionably noteworthy point overall.

Any thoughts on this would might prove very enlightening. It would be interesting to hear your comments.
