Hi i have finally taken the plunge after 20 years of talking about it and purchased a Catamaran hull
Prout Elite year 1990.
The story goes it was purchased in 1990 as a selfbuild and has sat in the yard ever since due to some unforseen circumstances. It has never been in the water
and i think it is a worthy project
as i would never be able to purchase
a fully finished one but can afford to do it bit by bit and would like to know the boat inside out for future cruising.
The Prout is currently situated in Dauntless boat yard Essex and i hope to bring it down to Cornwall Summer 2014 and start work on it in Gweek boatyard although i am open for suggestions if anyone knows a better yard here?
I plan to sail it around the world in 6 years time and want to have it ready to go buy then.
I have never worked on any boat or catamaran
before and to be frank no nothing about them although im not bad at woodwork and i am keen to learn.
So i thought i would join this forum and try and try and get some advice on what im going to need to buy and where to source it from.
Also the best way to get it down to Cornwall.
Where to start? Inside or out? What engine
to buy? Twin or single
? Size of mast
I have had a look arond on the net but can not find much info so would be very gratefull for any help i can get.
