His daughter Dixie had hopes he had sailed to a island but never found and no wreckage was ever found.

If my info is right the boat was home built but not totally finished

Well don't you now. And what makes you the arbiter of what this group may or may not be interested in? I was not after a debate - just the sailing characteristics. And as far as Mr Piver goes, just the facts. I quite like the look of the Piver trimarans, but don't know diddly squat about how they sail.

I started thus thread to discuss anything Piver.

I have had several Piver and a cross and Searunner and molehills.

No debate Piver was never found and we can speculate till the cows come home.

My Piver that I had of the same size as my cross. The Piver out sailed it. The Encore is a dream to sail. Saturday had a French couple out on her in 25 knots of wind and the wife was atthe helm and didn't want to give it back she was having a blast pasting the monohulls.

No one I don't think when they were built thought they would be sailing for this many years

I would love to get a group together of Piver owners for a sail in for a weekend. Maybe do one on the East Coast just like the Wharram group does in the Florida keys.

Any thoughts on this?

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

She's a tidy little boat! I can see why you like to sail her so much.

So one's getting a lot of fun for their money!

Yes she is allot of fun. If she isn't sold before I sell my Ericson I may keep her and get her back to Florida.

If I keep her I will add a hard top and add a windvane for cruising.

This is one gendarme the decks and cabin top are rock solid, nip delamination or rot.

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.



"I should have mentioned I've seen this 40 year old, but much lightened Piver Marguerite Star lift her main hull out a number of times, also been crewing or steering on board too when it occurred - so Doug, nothing is new under the sun.
Actually it is easy to do, fairly narrow overall beam and buoyant floats that increase below water volume rapidly as they immerse - plus some hard southwesterly gusts and full sail. Pas de probleme, as Jacques would say."


lifted from sandcrab's amazing multihull links...

The Wharram group seems to be pretty easy going and I believe any low-tech multihulls would be welcome. My goal is to make it down in 2014 myself.

A buddy of mine, Dan handles the Wharram group. Fact is the one last year Jim and Ruth Wharram attended.

Yes, it was James and hanneki I was going to drive down, but no one from this area (wharram owners) wanted to share the drive!

I was suppose to go also. But was in CA at the time.

Last time I talked to Ruth Wharram some years back she reminded me that she had sailed on the Tiki 24 that I had that was the first one splashed in the USA back in the 70's she had a good memory.

She will be missed.

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

stumbled across this video today, sorry if it has been posted before...



seems to me that no matter what boat you have, it's the adventure that counts, and the subsequent memories...
