Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

That fifth picture is really cool. The angle makes it look like it is flying.



If I knew how to get it here I would.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

This isn't a project boat, this is a managed equity partnership.

Sounds to me like a lawyer is involved.

Awesome Trimaran Piver 38'

The pictures of this one don't look too bad. The reality could be much different, however.
I've been on one Piver that was in the mid 40-foot range and not impressed with its 'use of space'. At any rate, trimarans have the least amount of useable space, generally speaking.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Some of you may not know Invictus. It was at one time the fastest sailboat on the Northwest/Puget Sound. It's a Transpac veteran. The Northwest Multihull Association had a challenge trophy for the fast boat (not just multi) named the Invictus Trophy.

My wife and I are headed out to look at it this afternoon. We've helped Larry race the boat and know it can sail very well. We've also been around long enough to know that sometimes the worst thing a guy can do to you is give you a free boat.

Hi Joe, I'm very interested in Invictus. If ya'll don't make a deal on her let me know and your general impression of her condition. Again if you don't get her and you think a year of hard work could get her back in the water pass my name on. I've sent an email to Nate but haven't heard back yet. Thanks
Willard

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I was sorry to see all the long time multis cleared out of Shilshole in the purge of renovation a few years back. Tough on the old timers.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Hi Willard,

We decided to pass on Invictus. It would be too expensive to upgrade/convert it to meet our purposes. Having said that:

1. The ad on Craigslist is misleading. There is no significant damage to any of the hulls.
2. Invictus could be put in the water and sailed in short order.

Invictus was built as a racing boat, and it was very successful in the 70s and 80s. It was also built very lightly. There is essentially no interior. It has used an 8hp outboard for power. The top of the daggerboard trunk is in the middle of the cabin. When we raced it, water would shoot up the trunk and start to flood the cabin!! That made for some exciting moments.

We found very few wet spots and practically no rot, certainly none that would pose any problem for repair. There are a lot of sails, most of them old. Larry added 11' to the top of the original mast to help sailing in the calms of a Puget Sound summer. We would go back to the original size for offshore work. The running rigging could stand a good run through the washing machine. All of the hardware should be pulled and rebedded. The bases for the genoa tracks are soft - by far the worst of the soft wood. The H rubber on the windows needs to be resealed or replaced. There are a few corners and edges where the fiberglass needs to be touched up.

I understand that Invictus was sailed in 2013, not that long ago. There is a man on site that knows Invictus very well and might be persuaded to help tidy her up.

IMO, a guy could pay a bit for Invictus and still come out ahead if his expectations for interior finish were not high. There is a hell of a lot of boat there.

If you're still interested, send a pm.

Cheers,
Joe

Someone was trying to sell another Wildcat about 3 months ago with the exact same problem. Also, if you are familiar with Bumfuzzle, they had delamination issues when their boat was only a couple years old. It definately seems to be an issue with these boats.

I beleive the core on these boats is foam..

It would be interesting to know the extent of the intrusion.. At $50K its pretty damn cheap.
