Re: New Trimaran build

You've got a great start. Keep at it. We need more tris cruising the oceans.

Cheers

Re: New Trimaran build

Big milestone on my project
The Hull is turned right side up.
Now I can start working on the bulkheads and the interior and figure out the interior space I got

Re: New Trimaran build

Great work! You need a shed over it now!


A good resource for boatbuilding info, mostly cat's, but plenty of glass over ply boats: https://diy-yachts.com/forum/index.p...2448582d5df231

Shed is kinda hard for me it seems lol.
I tried my best with 2 tents but both kinda broke quite fast.
Atm I'm using canvas to cover the inside and its working out better then the tents

Thanks for the link

Re: New Trimaran build

Just a cursory glance, but the folding system looks very similar to the Farrier (aka Corsair) design.
Factor, any difference noted in sailing characteristics between the two designs?

Hi Snort

Yes it is similar
I hope its characteristics will get close to the Corsair's Tri but I cant give u a deff answer on that.
It will probably have about the same characteristics as any Tri I guess, but I have been planning to redesign its interior from the beginning to make a full blue water cruiser, so speed isnt really what I was looking @.

To be honest, I first bought the plans for a KD860 Cat, but fell in love with the Scarab Avalon 9 Tri's looks and decided to build the Tri instead...

Re: New Trimaran build

Hi Gwen,
Great progress, it is a huge milestone when you turn the hull right side up. You are definitely doing it tough without a roof over it though. Keeping the plywood dry is one thing but also working with epoxy or any resin exposed to the sun is very tricky. I have finished building the interior of my Scarab 32 and will be starting on the deck / cabin this week.
Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing the photos and videos.
Regards
Ray Kendrick

Hi Ray
It is tricky indeed
I had that problem glassing the outside and learned from it .
I will only glass out in the yard when dry and overcast .
I got plenty of work I can do underneath the carport should it get to sunny.

And Ray again, thanks for the patience in answering my mails
