I think it had a big refit
, is now called LOE REAL, and just won the Newport
- Ensenada race
from a 2006 SailWorld article:
Another entry with a different kind of history
was Loe Real entered by H.L. Loe of El Paso, Tex. The 60-foot trimaran
was featured in the movie
'Waterworld.' Loe bought it in 1996 and has spent the years since modifying it for racing
'The first year was spent taking as much weight out of it as we could,' Loe said. 'They had built this thing fairly stout so Kevin Costner would feel secure, but it is a heavy boat.'
Loe has done several Ensenada races on smaller Corsair
31 trimarans, but this time he was easier to spot as Loe Real towered over the other multihulls.
'I was able to buy a lot of used sails
, so the main sail will have the name Permagaz on it,' he said.
