Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I started this thread in the multihulls forum. Could we please just stick to that topic. If you want to start a similar thread in the monohulls forum then do so. There's also lots of cheap projects in that category.
Thanks

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

This 65' cat is a project and billed as one. Looks like a trawler. The same guy is selling the molds too.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Heres a good deal, for someone considering a entry level well priced cat, Gemini for 36k obo I think these had less slap and better bdc than the newer 105's

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I remembered that Wharram. It sold on Ebay for around $5K. It was posted here Cheap Multis and Projects
It starts at post #1019 and runs to the next page.

I think somebody just used latex for the top sides.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

The good news is the need for a boat to facilitate an adventure is coming to a close, no more crossing oceans, no more dragging anchors no more being scarred fighting mother nature as the youth of today will be sitting in front of a electronic machine/phone etc for their thrills The 35 Marples trimaran for sale on CL has approximately 3000 hours of work by a master craftsman with less than a 800 hours left. At $30 an hour ($90k worth of labor), $40k worth of parts (still in the box)plus another $15k was spent on glue and wood, it would run an easy $175k to built a Marples 35 aft cabin and what will it get you? A boat that also is a piece of art?, cheap waterfront property? an adventure?35' Marples trimaran.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

A quite nice CC44 sold here 3 years ago for about 80k and I believe Jo Hudson's boat CC 35 brought about 35k around the same time. Perhaps your figures are a bit optimistic? Searunner 34 with new nets, new canvas, new yanmar, rebuilt sails sold for 30k.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Yes, those boats seemed like good deals and they are in the water but they are used. What is it like to have a brand new mast,5 new sails,new hatches,new oven and a clear finish with no wood rot? Don't get me wrong I buy used cars BUT I looked at pictures of those other boats and they all were dragging 3 hulls, I would never buy a trimaran that couldn't fly a hull. We didn't buy those boats so we don't know how happy they were after the fact. Bottom line is building a new boat is crazy but this guy took the hit already, sell the trailer and that is one cheap boat

That's the problem with home-built boats - you never know what you going to get. Professionally built boats not always better but at least more predictable.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Looks like pretty well done epoxy fillets to me..

Epoxy resin mixed and thickened with cabosil most likely

Sorry.. I wasn't sure what he was showing.. I didn't know if he was showing something he was proud of, or something he found in a boat.

I expected the one in the background to look the same as the one in the foreground. Because it didn't I assumed the worst (couldn't think of anything worse than glue gun glue used on a boat)...

Elmer's glue is water soluble...

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Yup the Cabosil is modified silica and it's the white stuff. Also used in toothpaste. Fumed silica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If you look close you can also see the fiberglass tape on those same joints. Pretty normal construction technique.
