Nice boats but your right, may be a wee bit of,soggy balsa to deal with.

It looks like a great boat to me.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Hmmmm, that's a lot of trimaran for a little money. I wonder if the deck is constructed with soggy cereal boxes or something similar. At any rate, I DO NOT KNOW HOW YOU CAN VIEW THE BOAT....
Thinking that a dinghy, kayak, laser, surfboard, etc... can probably get you out there to see it. Anyone have a key to get inside? Who knows...

As long as it is structurally sound... that looks like a great boat. Or could be a great boat with a cleaning and bottom paint.

If only I were in the market...

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Looking for a worthwhile, very doable project trimaran?

Jim Brown's old 31, "Scrimshaw," is for sale in South Florida. Vessel can be seen on YouTube (note that she was in a far better state of maintenance when Brown made the videos).

If you are seriously willing and able to save Scrimshaw & have the time, money and space (I only have two of these) to restore this uniquely pedigreed boat, please PM me for details of condition and owner contact info.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Re the Scrimshaw, if thats JB's own boat then those beams must be as designed ! Scary ! Love the planks screwed on between float and main hull, bizarre !

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Not a bad price for a fiberglass trimaran.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I wouldn't call $100K cheap, but it is a 40-foot catamaran.
Also not sure that calling it a "tank" is the best way of advertising a boat, but okay....
