Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

As the former owner of an AA31, I can assure that the beam is indeed 18'. I put a Cross keel and rudder with nice NACA foil shapes on mine. With those changes, it sailed really well.

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

Hello all,

I have been looking at this Lodestar for awhile. Ive tried contacting the seller a couple of times to no avail. I cant see I'm probably handy enough to give her what she needs to get back out on the water but the price sure is right though! What do you all think?

What of the Nicols - Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

We should be trying to save as may of Piver Trimarans as possible. These are part off the modern day multihull history. The Maritime Museum in Virgins now had the full collection of Pivers designed and they are digitizing his plans and selling them to home builders.

So i hope this thread will be of help to others.

I will be uploading picture of my Piver Encore over the weekend.
Hi mate,

May have seen you on the boat design board. Mine's a Nicol, but we should be protecting those too, no? Hope to read what I have on the thread above and learn what I can from it.


All the best,

G2L

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

Pssst, G2L. Nicols don't have anything really in common with Pivers. Different construction- cold molded versus hard chine sheet ply, different framing, different stock beams etc....Now a Cross or Horstman Tristar or Jay Kantola will share some elements and there are some postings on ths site.

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

Well, I dunno about that. Most Pivers were hard chined plywood boats. Few Crosses and Horstmans were. Both of the latter along with Nicols and other Down Under designs, came along toward the end of Piver's designs as 2nd generation multis . The Aussie boats tended to be a bit sportier. All, along with Browns, were a big part of the '60s multihull scene, so a classic tri thread title would fit. No big deal though; there's always the Searunner thread.

Cheers,

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

There were some round hull Pivers like the Dart which had a interesting construction technique with sheet ply topsides and a curved bottom. Then there was the AA series for advanced amateur construction.

There were some chine sheet ply Cross' like the C-26, some of the larger designs had that as a option. Interestingly some of his last designs had V chine hulls for the economy market, The Racer 12M and cruiser 10.6.

Hah : ) You found me out; paling around w. Piver folks : )

But, hey, I just learned something new from the above, so it's all good : )

Will get back to you on the design thread after my job is done and I have done enough research to talk more intelligently on the various topics that were covered.

All the best,

G2L

Re: Trimarans - All Piver Trimarans.

31 puts it around the Piver Nimble at 30' and the Herald at about 32' Looks more like a Nimble with higher cabins added.

It caught my side eye, of course a SD sail of any kind is my jam. Any thoughts here other than cheap ($4500) and on a can in SD don't know much on this one, other than my 6 year hook and crook run in SD was cut short and I'm still PISSED at First Interstate for f'ing me out my boat.

Sent them $22k from 21 to 26, should just role over the loan and collect another $44k? Or should we be "prudent" call the loan, then spend $10k in exp. selling a boat boat that you just appraised for $35k for $12k?

Yeah then we'll send a 26 year old kid a bill for $40k sorry boatery is NOT included or the $45k we agreed ONE boat INCLUDE!.

Very "prudent",at leat they're long gone and never got a cent from me sorry <rant>end</rant>

You lost me. A sound Piver might take you anywhere but it probably won't make you money if that counts.
