For the 2008 season, the Benjamins turned to Durokeel in Mexico City for a new keel with a bulb. The bulb and keel were built so the draft can change nearly 7 inches, allowing for some flexibility in setting up the boat. When the bulb is at minimum depth, the lead that would normally be occupying the space in the bulb is moved to the bilge, so the displacement remains constant regardless of draft. Working with a secret rule such as IRC, says Steve Benjamin, requires limiting the things you change in order to isolate what changes work. With the bulb at maximum depth, the boat rates slightly higher, 4 to 6 thousandths, which translates to approximately 15 to 22 seconds per hour of sailing. Because the boat is moded for light air, the bulb has remained in the higher position, creating a rating of 1.201 in 2010.
