Having read all 290 pages, i believe on this thread, there are pics of Searunners being lifted by travel lifts with the straps at the crossbeams. i assume that the A frame design is similar.

Hopefully someone with experience of hauling out a 31 will reply, but if they don't, you can probably find the answer in the Searunner Construction Manual (free to download) or send an email to Jim Brown.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

There was a guy that used to post his progress of fixing up his Searunner 34, Corazon. He had it on a mooring ball in front of his house in Mexico and it was one of the most beautiful 34's I have ever seen. He sold it a few years ago. Does anyone know how much he got when he sold Corazon?

You can search Corazon maybe and find some of his previous posts. I think he changed all his rigging to spectra. It was a nice SR34. Somebody should know where it went too.

Thanks, but I've seen all or most of his posts. Beautiful job he did on Corazon. If its confidential what he sold her for then I'll never know how much, but if it's NOT confidential, then I would love to know what an especially fine SR 34 like that sold for.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

I thought he mentioned the price somewhere. Maybe it was in the boat classifieds section. Not sure. I cannot remember. Mark would know. His SR34 is possible the best of them. You could try to message him. There is a very good one here but a 40ft on trademe.co.nz

I think that she is really a 37 with a stern extension. A fine example of a Searunner indeed. Perhaps oneof the finest examples of a Searunner i have ever seen, of course Mark Johnson's boat is perhaps the finest SR34. i don't particularily like the "full" enclosure (open in the after portion), as it seems too confining to me in good weather. i prefer the rigid dodger and rigid bimini that Doug Jayne built on his boat SV Traveler.

Question: has John Marples endorsed the stern extension? Does anybody know?

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Searunners are so special now and need to be collectively managed. But who has the time to do so.
This page that has been around for a while
Owners_List
Is all we have to go by and it should ideally be managed because these boats are so special. I believe the design even today is hard to better because of the benefits of ply. Construction costs make them out of reach 2019. So we need to keep the good ones for a while yet.

Yep, Special boats. FYI. I sold my 31 er in Port St Lucie after a wonderful trip from CT. Drole D'Oiseau may be somewhere in Mexico. At least that was the new owner's plan. Hope all is well with them!

I had my 31er on a travel lift many times. Not a problem. I made sure it was carried near the A - Frames and mine were stainless plus I was confident that all the connections were strong. But if you figure the weight distributed to 4 points it's really not that much stress.

A silent system that makes for very comfortable space.
Condensation the only issue without headliner?

I PM'ed Mark and the guy that bought Corazon a while ago and they never answered. Mark disappeared from this forum after he sold her.

i still manage a website for a plastic classic: hughes38 dot com altho i am looking for a trimaran, especially a Brown or Marples design, and if i buy a Searunner, i would be willing to take over the owners list. i already have trimaran stuff on my plastic classic website, which is morphing into a general nautical website depository of information and links.

So did Mark Johnson in S Carolina sell his trimaran? He was a source of lots of good information - i've read this entire thread - or are you referring to another Mark?

i just finished reading the Searunner Construction Manual cover to cover, and some stuff is out of date, but i thot that if i'm thinking of buying one, i should at least read the manual. Jim has a real good section of trimaran seamanship, pertaining to any trimaran, because he discusses the differences in handling between a centerboard boat and one with a LAR keel altho he doesn't call them that.
