Some Cool Photos

One day when I logged in, the photo strip at the top coincidentally had 2 pictures trimarans from 2 different members side by side. It was an accidental comparison of "new hotness" and "olde schoole".

I'm not a design snob, I see good things and merits in mono's and multi's. Check this out:

Like a rocketship.

Now this one:

Reminds me of one of those abandoned aircraft on a Pacific Island that you fire up and it still flys. I love both of these boats. Maybe someday I'll fix up and old tri.

You are right, cool. Let me be the one to ask the dumb question...why is one amma(s) higher than the other on the Arc of infinity? I know it is a design thing but why? does this allow her a slight heel under sail? maybe more stability or even more forgiving? hmmm.

Some tris are designed to sit flat with amas firmly in the water (like mine).
This gives a quieter ride at anchor without any flopping and from wakes, but it's slower under sail as there is more wetted surface. It's a compromise.

You are right,
cool pics. Any idea what years these are? I was just curious to see how the time difference matched the design difference.

For once, sailboatdata.com let me down. The Crowther isn't in there. Some deeper digging seems to indicate that Arc of Infinity is a Crowther Buccaneer 24 or 33. I have no idea what the newer boat is, or what year it is.

Yes he is. Sailboat Designs of Lock*Crowther
Would have never left him out. (although nothing too great on some of the specific designs.). I used to own a Crowther Kraken 33.

Thanks for finding that Barney. My search-fu is weak.
