There are a few bi-rigs under construction but none sailing that I am aware of except for the Radical bays. Heres another 12.3 at a bit more advanced stage than mine, but I catching up to him. He has documented everything during construction and is a good read. http://www.mahnamahna.com.au/
The 12.3 and 12.5 is the same boat with a slightly different bow profile.
I have built the cabin
top with an extension back to above the rear seat so a full hardtop.
I think there have been a number of boats built around the world. Would pay to shoot of an email
to Lorraine Schionning and ask.
I'm not keen on outboards and they do present some difficulty housing them especially if you want the walk through transomes, I am building the walkthroughs at seat hieght level rather than full walkthroughs.
is one of those things that leads to the never ending spiral to obesity that many cats suffer. I have expended a lot of time thinking of what my final direction will be and I think I am happy now. As I am only using small diesels, 20 Hp, I will fit a high pressure pump and a bigger alternator
to one and use that as my defacto generator. This save the wieght and maintainence of yet another diesel
aboard and being only 20 Hp the desal and alternator
are a decent load for it. Yes it will put more hours on one motor
and may need to be replaced sooner but then a seperate genny is in the same position. An inverter
will supply all the 240v I need and if I want a small aircon it could be powered through the inverter
. Aircon is one of those things that seem more suited to a land existance and I feel people need to adjust to the sea environment
rather than take all the mod cons but then I am probably a little nuts.
Did you mean you don't need a boat OVER 45 feet. I agree for a couple of people a boat much over 40 feet seems rediculous.
The boat in that link doesn't list a seperate gen set and only has 300 wats of solar
and a wind
gen. I feel this is quite small if extened stays away from the dock
are anticipated, especially with outboards. I am not intending to be frugal with power though.
That link is barrocka and I don't think it was intended to be a long term cruiser so the power is probably reasonable.
