Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

sorry for gushing here, but stumbled across this picture of a piver from the historical multhihull thread on Boat Design...

"Hi Gary. The photo is of the original Manta, a Piver, then came Bandersnatch which was a collaboration between Lock & John. It went on to win the Hobart race. Unfortunately Bandersnatch was destroyed, so then Manta 2 was built. It never went to Hobart, but went on to win the Brisbane to Gladstone race a number of times. Paul

great stuff if you have the time, or interest...

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

well, she's finally floating and rigged after a few false starts, and mishaps. Thankfully, she's light enough to be pulled up produce rollers by my van, so I can launch, check and haul by myself.

Dry bilges after 2 weeks, only to be 4" deep in rainwater leaking in the hatches, windows and vents. But, a weekend of maintenance 25+ years overdue should solve most of that.

Anyway, another piece of dubious sailing history is getting saved from the scrap pile, and ready for some fun!



many thanks to Richie Buehn for his help and expertise in rigging, and general knowledge. And thanks to the guy who's name I can't remember who sold me the mast, boom, and sails for such a deal!

Get those rain leaks fixed ASAP! Freshwater is the worst in these boats!

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

Boatguy - yeah, I hear you on that! I preserved, and epoxied the bilges, so I have a 24hr buffer, but yeah, dusty bilges are my friend!

Kingrich - I'm not a Pver expert, but am happy to share my experience with you. Feel free to ask any questions you have, and I'll try to point you in the right direction. All can say so far, is be thorough, and replace more than you think you should. I had several false starts with mine because I didn't do exactly that. Once I had my mind made to go the extra mile, it actually made things much easier - and oddly less expensive too!

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

Greetings,
New to the forum, but have been lurking a while and was quite pleased to find this thread and group of sailors. Hello!

Posting some pics of our AA41. She is 11,000 lbs after mods with additional ton or two of load aboard.

We are currently living aboard on the West Coast and will be casting off to towards the Oceana area this Spring.

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

I haven't been on in a while. Starting tomorrow my Piver Encore is getting painted down below.

I just bought a Raymarine ST2000 tiller auto pilot. It handles her so nicely and getting ready to add a wireless Garmin gWind so I can use the autopilot to sail to the true wind.

Doors anyone have plans to make a wind vane self steering.

I have Jim Brown's design. Doors any one have experience with it.

Triandtriagain welcome and nice pictures.

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

Hi all, My name is Tom and I've owned my Victress "Toru" since 1981 in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico. She turned 50 last year and I just listed her on sailboatlistings.com. She has been a lot of fun over the years and I've met some wonderful sailors. My health prohibits me from doing the maintainence necessary to keep her seaworthy. Happy Sails, Tom

Tom I tried looking up the ad without any luck.

On YouTube do a search for piver part 1 there are 2 videos about art piver.

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

Well I finally got my new wiring and went with LED lighting, cabin and running lights.

I added the Nexus Sale pack 3 which includes a depth, knott transducer which will be installed when I beach her. Installed the wireless wind transducer which will talk to my Raymarine ST2000 plus tiller autopilot and my laptop threw the Nexus NX2 server.

Also added a flexible 100 watt solar panel and controller. Also a new inverter 1000, 2400 watt peak load.

All I have have to add is ais transponder

Then starting my trip south

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

Another trick I have been doing for years is too add rock salt to my dusty bilges just incase of a leak and fresh water gets to the bilge when the boat is left for any time.

Remember fresh water promotes rot while saltwater pickles

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

My bilges have been dry for years. Last night my bilge pump went on my bilge were full of fresh water from my water tank. So you never know when you get fresh water..

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

hello everyone, my friend and I have located a piver 31', not completely sure of its condition bit the owner says it should be ready for the water without too much work. the problem it that it is on a ranch in California, and has no trailer. so before I go out there, I need to figure out a way to move it. it is my understanding it has an 18' or so beam. kinda wide to be hauling on the open road right? is there anyone from California on here that has any knowledge of the laws regarding transporting such a vessel. any options as to finding help to get it to the water? is it possible to anchor off shore for free while we prepare? I have a million questions. if anyone has any info, I thank you.
Bryan
