by Richard Gladwell, Sail-World.com/nz

Is it a Beiker? Is it a Rocket?
by Mark Jardine
No, it's an upside-down Bladerider! We've written about, and seen the photos of Brad Gibson's Bladerider over the years, and it's been amazing to see the transformation of the boat, keeping it bang up-to-date and incorporating many innovative ideas.
