Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Poly Cons are good boats, a bit heavier than the wood original. It would need a survey but the design would do what you want.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

That CAT link was for others. I can't come up with that money.

This one is certainly within reach: Last chance: Seaclipper 28 trimaran

Would all agree that this would be a great boat for Hawaii Island hopping, becoming more familiar with ocean sailing, and could make it to the South Pacific from Hawaii w/2-3 crew, if I had/wanted to?

Would the Mac 36 be a better boat for this plan? It would be more money, but I should be able to come up with it.

I know this is not the ideal recreation for such limited funds, but it's more for crisis protection than recreation.

Thanks!

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

You'd be best off with a Wharram Pahi 26 or Tiki26. Both well proven. Have you thought about crewing on a boat instead? It might be a better way to get started than setting out with a rotten bottom. If you don't have time to build a dinghy you aren't going to have the time for a renovation. The least expensive option is finding a smaller sturdy fiberglass mono under 30'.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

The Mac 36 is really just a big Hobie. It just has tramps and no deck unless it's been modified. There is no weather protection at all and very little room in the hulls. You might be able to stand up in the center section but the rest is crawling room only, I think. It is super fast and would be fun. It is not a cruiser, at least not what I consider one. You were asking about that one in Florida but that 35' in Panama is what you want. At least it's closer to Hawaii. It's way better for your purposes than the Mac.

Yeah, that boat's too small, too.

The Mac 36 is out, too.

Is there a sailing cat model that's basic (nothing fancy), in the mid-high 30's in length, light, can handle 4 people and cheap? And has a diesel engine, or two. (I'm figuring minimal amount of fuel/weight for making it through the duldrums.)

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

The Condor's are about as fast as they get. They are bolted together so you can take it apart and truck it anywhere or just ship it to Hawaii. The downside is there just ain't much room in there. She may be too fast for a novice. You might tip her over. It would be easy to do but what a ride.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I am interested in buying the 50' catamaran I mentioned in a previous post but it is thousands of miles away from me and so far I have only seen pictures. Some have suggested a quick lookover survey before committing to paying for flights etc.

Can anyone recommend a surveyor in the San Francsico Bay Area that could do a quick lookover survey for me ?

Many thanks in advance
