Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Thanks, but I was really hoping for clean screen captures or scans. My fault that I didn't notice that you originally said you would take photos and I'm really sorry for the time you spent doing that. I'm hoping I can find clean stuff that I can print out and put on the wall of my office. Sorry about that and thank you again for your efforts.

The bummer is that I had all of that stuff until a couple years ago but threw it out when I was moving. The only reason I threw the stuff away is because I assumed all of it would be online somewhere or at least at John's website. I was wrong about that!

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

WILDERNESS update: I'm putting the finishing touches on the aft cabin main hatch turtle, having sealed it from the coming winter rains. That's the last of the exterior carpentry upgrades. I'm still waiting to hear from the Iverson Dodger folks to get that project underway. I've decided on their system because (1) I don't have time to build a hard dodger, (2) it's far lighter than I can make one in foam and plexi, (3) I really like the looks and weatherliness of the combination with bimini and side panels. For tropical heat and for the wet and cold of the verdant Pacific Northwest, I think it's an ideal combo and compromise.

Remaining, now, is to complete the painting of the pedestal, final coat of LPU on the cabintop and cockpit, then start installing deck gear (winches, tracks, blocks, traveller, etc. I still haven't taken the boat to the yard to pull the stick, I need to reassemble the steering first, after repainting the pedestal. Someone else is going to do the lion's share of the mast overhaul ( I worked out a trade for my previous electronics package). Then it's time to put the inside back together. Much of that is simply installing what's been collecting dust in the shop for a couple years now. Before that, however, I want to get new plumbing installed and complete the freezer installation. The galley will be the first truly complete section since I began this complete overhaul a couple years ago. Things still look on track for a summer cruise west then north. I'l send pics when I have something shiny and uncluttered with tools and materials.

Roy, what is the cost of the above, if you don't mind me asking? My boat really needs something and I don't have the skills to make something myself. I was just thinking since they are making one for you it would be easy to make a second.

Thanks

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

John, The folks at Iverson are hard to get in contact with, lots of work, I guess. I don't think they service the East coast. The owner builds in Olympia, WA, and lives in Southern California, commuting by private plane. And your build will be as custom as mine, so they won't be alike. I have a quote sheet that shows the base price for the dodger, bimini, side panels and all the options (many!) with attached prices. For the deluxe version with all the bells and whistles, it can easily rise to nearly $10,000. If you send me a PM with your email, I will send you a copy. When I was up in Anacortes, WA, several weeks ago, I had a chance to see a bunch of them. Here are some pics of my favorite boat:

Boat: SeaClipper 38 Tri
Posts: 31
Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

My tri is a SeaClipper 38 by John Marples, designed in the '80's and this one was launched in 2001, of epoxy and glass over mainly 1/2" plywood. I believe it is a much more beautiful boat than the SeaRunner series, having more flowing lines and curvatures and canted floats. It also has huge buoyancy in the prominent bow sections on the floats which would likely help prevent pitch-poling etc. It sails well, is beautifully balanced and is pretty speedy for a cruising tri. There is a SeaClipper 34 and now apparently smaller versions.

There was a recent inquiry asking if anyone knew of a modern version of the SeaRunner and one reply suggested the Constant Camber series. It would seem to me that the SeaClipper would be considered a more modern version of the SeaRunner, even if it was designed by Marples and not Brown - but I understand that they collaborated a lot together.

I have been really surprised that no one else seems to have or even know of this SeaClipper series of designs. If anyone knows any pro or con about this design, maybe they could let us know what it is. Otherwise I think it is a much overlooked design and should receive some positive promotion.

If you know of anyone with SeaClipper 38 please respond with how to get in touch with him/her.

Thanks.

RR.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Could you post some pictures of your boat?
I've never come across one.
Do they have the same type stern castle?

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Rotten Ricky and fellow BCMA denizens, I hope to be there this summer and perhaps see your boats. I will be based out of Anacortes or LaConner for the summer months with WILDERNESS. I look forward to meeting you folks.
