Marko Konzack's .21

Just got these pics of a German boater named Marko Konzack that has built his own .21 outrigger that is some what based on the earlier Kep's 21. The tub seem to be of a semi-carbon design and the sponsons are the original "old" Kep's ones. It will be interesting to hear about how it performs. :)
