Re: Crowther Buccaneer Trimarans.

I found the plans. They are most definitely for a Buccaneer 40.

Cheers,

That is very interesting. Does it have tube cross beams. I bet it would be a cool boat. Thanks for improving my knowledge

Re: Crowther Buccaneer Trimarans.

No, the cross beams are not tubes. They're formed going across with dips on the ends going to the amas. All in all, it's a pretty racy looking boat.

Cheers,

Re: Crowther Buccaneer Trimarans.

It is interesting as my understanding was that Bucs had tubes and Krakens had beams. We have a buc 33s Robinox and Wolverine and a K 33 Tessarac and years ago a K 40 called Ringo. I wonder what the difference between a Buc 40 and a kraken 40 is. It might possible that Ringo was mis identified as a Kraken

Among other things, I would guess that the Buc has higher buoyancy amas. These look pretty full compared to some Crowthers.

Re: Crowther Buccaneer Trimarans.

Buccaneer 40 plans are now on their way to Australia with the expectation that they will be scanned and made available on the internet.

Gotta love those Crowthers

Cheers,
