YES! Great ship :D on my list to see as well! Official speed record holder. It was never armed though I don't think. Very cool ship though, and awesome performance :U they took a slightly different approach than the Americans with the fully submerged foils and all but they seemed to both hit the same speeds (the Pegasus just unofficially.) Would be interesting to know more detail on the stability though, seems the Bras d'Or had a 90-10 allocation of lift while the Pegasus was more around 30/70 if I'm not mistaken (70% lift generated by the rear foil. It's the shorter ship though so part of that loading difference is an effect of the polar moment generated from having more mass further from the CG.) Pegasus had flat foil, I'd imagine the Bras d'Or was better at self-stabilizing because of the amount of dihedral on both foils ...

whoops there I go, ramble :U but YES THAT SHIP
