Can a Maricat fly a hull?

When i had my last Maricat I never managed to fly a hull while sailing it. A few times I reckon I politely lifted the hull just clear of the water, but the boat never appeared to be designed to get a hull right up high out of the water. mainly because the lower hull seemed to push so low in the water when the breeze is blow'in harder.

I kind of figured the Maricat would tend to bury the lower hull deep enough that the nose would go under before it had a chance to really fly a hull like I can on my Nacra. My old Mari used to bury the nose and then that was the end of it, I'd usually go over front first. Maybe more mast rake would help in that instance?

Can any of you other Maricat owners fly a hull up high with your boat?

Cheers

Barry
