I get so tired of people complaining about cheap multihull
and the home built. A lot of the home built were done right because they would have their love ones on board, but a lot were overbuilt and 2 heavy.
When I was in a 60Kt blow and a new fiberglass trawler
and came broad side in to my bows my little old 35 year old plywood Piver
sustained 300-400.00 in damage and my boat punched holes in the trawler
to the tune of 40,000-$50,000 to it.
Most people don't understand the strength of plywood
and that it absorbs shock fiberglass
Plus so much easier to fix. True they must be maintained but doesn't ever boat.
That bad ones were fastened with galvanized nails.
I'm on a Searunner
31 splashed in 75 home built. Beautiful joinery with the interior
fitted out with a lot of teak
and mahogany. Looks real good but add to much weight.
let's save these boats as they were the start of modern multihull history
