CBTFCo. | Inventors of Canting Ballast Twin Foil Technology
Canting Ballast Twin Foil™ is an elegant yet practical and effective solution that incorporates the significant advantages of movable ballast into cruising and racing sailboat designs, especially for short course around the “buoy” racing. A canting strut with a bulb of ballast at its tip provides righting moment quickly and easily. Because of the advantageous position of the ballast, a CBTF design needs only about half of the ballast required for a conventional keelboat and can be achieved at the touch of a button rather than the efforts of a large crew.
The Basic Canting Ballast Twin Foil Architecture
The CBTF patents cover sailing yachts using a canting keel or ballast with fore and aft controllable foils or rudders to affect changes in side force and/or maneuvering, including sections with trim tabs and jibing daggerboards.
