Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

On another note, I got a phone call this morning at 6 AM from Chris Glass, who has been bringing his SR 37, IMAGINE, down from Eureka, in Northern California, bound for Ensenada, Baja California, about a hundred miles south of San Diego. He called me to ask if he could side tie to me while he took care of a minor emergency. He had lost his Gori prop while coming south from Catalina, and needed to do some repairs at a local boatyard. Fortunately, he was able to anchor about 100 feet away from me, so I took the RIB out to his boat, did a side saddle tow on it, and we did a textbook loop around the anchorage and side tied to WILDERNESS. I'll send some pics of the two Searunners side by side for comparison of size and floatation. It's pretty impressive how different they are. Chris is jealously eyeing my wet hatches, which are in the process of repainting. The previous owner of IMAGINE had sealed all his wet hatches because of some dry rot issues caused by eternal rainforest conditions in Northern California (similar to the Pacific Northwest, when there is no drought. I am especially glad I built with West System, sealing EVERYTHING before painting with LPU. Mark Johnson, living under similar humidity, but considerably warmer temperatures, can attest to the value of this little detail when constructing a wooden boat. Anyway, some pictures will be forthcoming this afternoon.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Damn, if only he had an outboard! He'd have stuck a spare $100 prop on and be in Mexico now. Although you can het yourself a decent taco in San Diego also.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Nice one Roy. You got the right idea and keep on going and finish. And when your sailing across the big blue somewhere send in a few pics of where you are and and lets see then what kind of comments are made.
Thought i would show off another cool boat with the Searunner. A Pathfinder open boat in the pic.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Sorry, busy coupla days...... Chris Glass's boat is now at Driscolls Boat Works, waiting for a Friday haulout to make his repairs. I just finished painting the primer in the wet hatches. Now I'm lying on my bunk, sipping a gin&tonic, transferring photos and sending them off for your pleasure.

Okay, perhaps too much gin, having challenges with pics. These four show the big picture between the 37 and the 40. You can see the difference in displacement with the 40, and underwing clearance. Now, for some details....

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

First, the float transoms showing differences in overall size. Second, WILDERNESS stern view. Notice the shape of the sterncastle, with wider cabinsides, wider opening "window" and (eventual) stained glass window ports in expanded area. Third, a close up of the sterncastle wall, cantilevered out on the widened sterncastle deck. Fourth, IMAGINE stern view, showing "standard" Searunner cabinside and side deck. Fifth and sixth, showing interior views of sterncastles, WILDERNESS is still torn apart.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Okay, and a couple other shots. The difference in nonskid. Loose versus tight bow nets. Relative size of deck space between 37 and 40. Sorry about the orientation of the net shots, but I'm too tired to correct them tonight. You can zoom in for more detail by clicking on the pics.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

So, the differences are due to my being the sole owner for thirty-something years, having woken up too many nights at three AM dreaming up new ideas, having played with the boat a lot and wanting more good stuff to play with, and having had the fortune to learn a lot of cool tricks from some really talented folks, then be able to incorporate them with my own flavor. Now, it's time to finish off these projects and get on with the journey.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Ross, what's the water temperature during the year where you live? Here, in Southern California, the water ranges from 62-68 F (around 20 degrees C). It's not warm, and further north, in the Pacific Northwest, it's damn cold.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Hauraki Gulf Surface temperatures tend to follow the
trend of air temperature fairly closely,
though with a lag of 2-4 weeks. Maximum
temperature is in January-February. and
minimum in July-August.
Water temperature in January might go as high as 23 or 24C 73.4 F
August can go as low as 13C 55.4 F
Further north it would be 25 C 77 F
I used to always go swimming easily but now the chill of the water is starting to
slow me down. I need the tropics bad. Many NZders head north to fiji thats where they are all now. Maybe one day we well meet in the middle someplace wouldnt that be hooot.
