In the search of a catamaran
i am detailed checking, testsailing and then surveying a 43ft one off cat monday till wednesday.
It was professionally build by a well known cat builder
based on John Cross 39ft Design/Plans which was extended in the middle area by 4ft during production using the hull
plans from a 43ft John Cross fastback.definitley a good move as its very fast even in light Wind
and the fastback hulls are known to work
As the 39ft Plans and registration
used, the registration certification
and papers provided state its 10,85m or 39ft long. All other serial
Numbers of hull
and engines fits. measuring at my first viewing confirms it is 13.1m=43ft long as Plans, cat builder
and owner state. They all say that this is very handy as you get billed for cheaper below 40ft length and there is nothing illegal about it Not to update registration certificate and papers.
Is that true there is no need or obligation to get this extra 4ft registered?
