Cartoon stories about Nautical Tales
Very enjoyable. Thank you.

Has anyone come up with some neat solutions using duckbill or joker valves?
Thanks!

P.S. I do NOT recommend using the same hatches I used in the floor of the cock-pit (leak like crazy-redesign in process)

Dan,
Congratulations, the boat looks great!

My old 25 had a similar issue, though perhaps not as extreme as yours, by the sound of it.
I built a kind of narrow heating vent grille insert for the trunk, with the louvres angled to splash the water back down, but allow cockpit water to drain. It reduced the splash factor but did not eliminate it.

if you're interested I will look around for a photo or drawing.

That looks like a very good deal! No mention of water intrusion into the plywood. Sails are expensive, but for $5K AUD, hard to go wrong.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Owner does mention water ingress from deck leaks, so may require some new wood or at least caulking.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

There is a good looking SR 40 for sale in Colon, Panama on the Caribbean side of the Canal. Looks like much recent work was done to head into the Pacific, including a new engine in 2016. Sadly, life circumstances forcing owner to sell, I know the feeling.
Find it on Apollo Duck International-Trimarans- $69K
