To put it mildly, Olin was less than impressed by the radical hull appendage, or "hula," attached to the underbody of the Kiwi boat, NZL-82 (for more on the hula and the 31st Americas Cup, see "Loyalty & Cyanide" on page 54). "The way I see it, its an evasion of the rules," he said. "I cant imagine itd present a tactical advantage." Neither was he a fan of what he saw as the lax eligibility requirements regarding the nationality of crewmembers in contemporary Cup racing. "They should be much stricter," said Olin. "It would solve a lot of the squabbles and the legal stuff that goes on."
