Thanks.  The boat floats level at rest.  Rare Bird has a more voluminous windward hull (1m longer, no rocker and the covered saloon/under cover steering station.  RB also has twin engines and less tramp/more solid area on the bridgedeck.  The rigs are the same, although BD has a stiffer mast.   RB is half a ton or so heavier (3 t vs 2.5).

Very nice!!! congrats!!!
I had one question regarding the windward hull - it seemed to be floating higher than the leeward one in the last part of the video - but I also saw most of the people sitting close to or on the leeward hull - are there differences between rare bird and blindate?
