Default Mercury Concept into production?

Hi SB team,

I read the article on WS 40 years anniversary and liked very much the Drake's mercury concept.

I seems a good attempt for a single board solution for both light sub-planning winds and planning conditions. I would say: the most serious attempt seen without a daggerboard!

Are there solid plans to bring it to production? 2008 late launch? Wait till 2009?

Or was it just a crazy idea, just added on the windsurf aniversary article to make it more sounding?

(I was thinking in buying the Phantom 320 for the single board solution but depending on Mercury's evolution I might wait for it. It would be a non-racing but freeride solution)

Thanks in advance and best regards

Looks like taking the hybrid carve concept a stage further.

Happy the idea is to make it lighter, those hybrids were just too damm porky to fly.
