From the G32 Alinghi…

Every year, at the start of the season, we do NDT (non-destructive testing), an ultrasound of all the carbon parts – the hulls, foils, beams and mast. This scanner allows us to check the state of wear of the boat, to identify and repair any initial cracks. We did not observe anything during the last scan and no signs of wear have been visible to the naked eye since, unlike a rope or block, which show weaknesses visually. More here.
