Neil Wilkinson has almost finished his F-22 which he has been building for the past few years in Auckland.
Main hull is self built, while the beams, folding system, floats, and trailer were supplied by Farrier Marine.
Neil is an old school friend and a foil engineer for Team New Zealand, and previously
involved with the
lifting foils for Oracle when they just pipped Team New Zealand for the Americas Cup in San Franciso.
However, it looks like he is finally back on track and with the right team now........., and he writes:
Pics of the boat after painting. Anti-skid still to do after all the hardware is on. Iím pretty pleased with it
overall & aiming for a February launch, all being well. However, Team NZ frenzy is not helping.
