Re: Modernizing a Prout Elite 37ft

I started putting in the floor frames and shower base in the port and starboard hulls.
have got a little bit more laminating to do before putting in the plumbing for the bilge pumps in the bilge sumps.

port hull will have an automatic "whale gulper " for the shower water,backed up with a manual hand pump
stb hull will just have a manual pump,both sumps have overflows to the aft bilges,i case they ever get full enough to overflow.

who needs a bath tub when there is a swimming pool all round,that is unless you are worried about dropping the soap in the shower

the bath tub now has floors throughout

I finished glassing in the floors yesterday in the 2 fwd cabin areas.

I'm off to Hungary for a few weeks later today,so I will be living the life of a dirt dweller till I get back,then hope to start on fabricating some of the moulds for the interior furniture and ceilings.

I haven't quite figured on where to put the "go faster stripes" or what color,but they should make a big difference in speed

if you want something other than a Prout you should get something other than a Prout. These boats function OK as is, but there are pretty limited by the hull shape, beam, weight, wing clearance, etc, etc.
Atoll, I guess this was around post 6 or so. Now, you're doing a bang up job that's for sure. But I'm still uncertain as to the overall quality of the results based on the fact the hulls themselves are so limiting.

My guess is those "hulls" probably have more safely sailed bluewater miles on them than any other catamaran around. The Prouts aren't known for incredible performance, but they are known for getting the job done safely. A Prout wouldn't be my first choice as it doesn't exactly match my needs, but I have the utmost respect for what they can accomplish and the significant impact they have had on the history of multihulls.
