New Here

I am the proud new owner of a note on a boat. She's a Searunner 40 with a centerboard problem... bad pin. I had a brand new idea givin to me, concrete it up. Ok, I understand that a multihull doesn't HAVE to have a center board but how detrimental is it to the searunner. I'm not going to be out for the world cup here. Just a cruser that wants to hike out everynow and then. Any ideas are welcomed. Thanks

Re: New here

Ahhh your not gunna hike out much on a 40 ft Tri LOL better to repair the center board cus it will help to windward ! Don't know the condition of your boat but you have one of the best cruiseing sailing boats around! those boats have been everywhere and many times around the world ! I would never mess with one of the best, just repair it and enjoy it !! I would love one myself but so far have not found one in good enough condition to buy! Hope you enjoy your new boat and I don't think I would listen to somebody who wanted to CEMENT in a centerboard trunk !!! LOL

Hehe that's a good reply. Comedy is always the best medicine. Believe me, I DO NOT want to be the redneck that makes one of these boats a square rig. Tried to by one a few years ago. Old now and just want a boat to get away from reality in a hurry. Thanks for your input. Duly noted.

jb Royal,

I think concreting it up is not a good idea.

There are plenty of Searunner owners on this forum. Search "searunner trimaran" and see the threads/posts. Try reaching out to someone.

You could also try searunner dot org to locate a Searunner 40 owner who might be able to help.

yea, I lean away to. These boats run in what I would call,"a really low draft". Could you lift one enough with a barrel sling long enough to do the work. Just a thought. Going huntin
