Re: Trimaran for a Single Hander... Why Not?

I agree with Mr Wessels about Horstmann Tristars--the later ones anyway. The early ones look like a Piver with centre boards in the amas--later the cabin tops extended all of the way across--makes more sense and allows for a much stronger trimaran. I would have preferred a Horstmann myself but there were none available in Oz at the time, and there are few there today. My next major re-fit will see some radical changes to mine if I decide to keep it.
