This new diamond though is just bedded in the bottom of the core with no divinycell and the bottom laminate is attached just from the resin around the edge of the plastic diamond? Am I missing something?


That's how I see it as well. The diamond plate is inserted in the foam core the same way the footstrap inserts are on the deck side ...router hole + resin ..... in the EPS.
The insert (plates) are waiting under the deck upside down to welcome the 4 screws of the strut plate (numbered 1 to 4)

So, it is mostly the surface tension along the deck skin that holds the strut plate in place, providing the EPS around the diamond plate remains dry and stuck to the upperskin and that the hull diamond cut laminate does not unstick under the push/pull or torsional load.

If water finds a way through the router cut via the board bottom ..... :roll: :roll:
.... The Performance board has a 3-year warranty

The Performance board thickness is +/- 5cm (2in)

Oh, I see, that would be much better if the foot strap box is just above the diamond so that the diamond is pushing on the upper laminate, not just into the core.

If that's the case, I don't know why Carafino didn't answer my initial question? Would be nice to know for sure.

Am I correct in thinking now, (not one action photo or video yet) that it will be the end user who will also be the first time tester?

Yah very unusual, for a product that has had every other aspect publicly shown right down to a new logo design, yet no on water video of the foil in action, although we did at least see them sitting on the beach and the water was not far away.

Maybe he is super confident and just wants everyone to be surprised!
