New Double Ama Outrigger From Portugal?

Are my eyes deceiving me? Check this out, especially the last or ending frame:

and confirm whether there is more than one ama on this new K-1 Olympic racer by Nelo?

Sorry if this doesn't work. Then try punching in "Vanquish 4" on youtube. Kden

Huki has already come up with this and calls it the "gullwing"

The difference between the Gull Winged boats and these Nelos is that the Nelo will not remain upright w/o the floats. They will immediately tip over when placed in the water. So you got to paddle them fast to keep them upright like a bicycle. Since they now manufacture surf skis, I wouldn't be surprised if Nelo came out with their own OC-1 and V-1 like the Italians have? Too bad Nelo hasn't sent one out here to Hawaii for beta testing? Guarantee it won't just be used in the Ala Wai. You can bet that it would be doing quite a few Hawaii Kai runs, just like in the old days with high aspect rudder and surfing on its side. Still get some crazy old K-1 paddlers around who would love to test the buggah out in the ocean.
