Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Hi there,
I'm cutting the tip of my bow to take headstay chainplate apart for inspection on my SR37.
I'm looking for advise on how to go about it, what should I use to rebuild the bow tip

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

I took Novacaine out to play today. We only did about 80 nautical Miles today but it was a great day. 3.2m swell @ 7sec. Small craft advisory. But I still dont know if that applies to me. Lol. Fair winds!!!
Nice to meet everyone here If I havent met you yet.

Thanks Jester for that video of sailing on the California coast. An old California boy myself, know that coast well.

I contacted John Marples and he will provide the plan sheet for the bow for a nominal fee

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

I put the video elsewhere if anyone else wants to see what a 40' searunner looks like inside and under sail.
Fair winds!

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Nice vid, Max.

The boats' name reminds me of the lyrics of a song by Cold Chisel, a legendary Aussie rock band. Scroll down till you find the line:

"Or the growing need for speed and novacaine!"

Reckon speed on Novacaine would suit you and your boat, if you see what I mean...

Khe Sanh

Cold Chisel



I left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh
And the soul was sold with my cigarettes to the black market man
I've had the Vietnam cold turkey
From the ocean to the Silver City
And it's only other vets could understand
About the long forgotten dockside guarantees
How there were no V-day heroes in nineteen seventhy-three
How we sailed into Sydney Harbor
Saw an old friend but I couldn't kiss her
She was lined, and I was home to the lucky land

And she was like so many more from that time on
Their lives were all so empty, till they found their chosen one
And their legs were often open
But their minds were always closed
And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains
And the legal pads were yellow, hours long, pay packets lean
And the telex writers clattered where the gunships once had been
Car parks make me jumpy
And I never stopped the dreams
Or the growing need for speed and Novocaine
So I worked across the country from end to end
Tried to find a place to settle down, where my mixed up life could mend
Held a job on an oil-rig
Flying choppers when I could
Oh but the nightlife nearly drove me round the bend
And I've traveled round the world from year to year
And each one found me aimless, one more year the worse for wear
And I've been back to South East Asia
But the answer sure ain't there
But I'm drifting north, to check things out again, yes I am
Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And only seven flying hours, and I'll be landing in Hong Kong
There ain't nothing like the kisses
From a jaded Chinese princess
I'm gonna hit some Hong Kong mattress all night long
Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And it's really got me worried
I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry
And the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And it's really got me worried
I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone

Hi Roy,

I also am trying to figure out a place to mount 3 100 watt solar panels on my SR 40.(I want to run a small45 quart fridge/freezer)
The aft cabin roof has plenty of space, but you need to be able to walk around up there to deal with the mainsail and boom.
Also the jib sheets are there.
They need to be protected from lines fouling on them also.
There is also the problem of shading.
Where will you put yours?

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

i think that the best place for the solar panels is on the bimini - yes more shade, but also better protected

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Positioning the panels is a challenge. I have some larger panels that were gifted to me by a very generous member of our forum. (Thanks!).

Some options, besides atop the Bimini, are to mount them outboard of the lifelines AFT of any sheets or shading. Also, atop racks mounted aft AND ABOVE the sterncastle or the sterncastle deck.

I'm working on my overhaul of the "windows" (replacing the plastic with G-2 tempered glass), and upgrading the cabin top deck hardware (Harken jib track, blocks and traveller). These turned out more complicated than anticipated because I chose to upgrade the headliner insulation and finish some galley remodelling. The issues revolve around sequences. I had to solve the securing of the jib sheet tracks, THEN install the new insulation, then paint some details before reinstalling the headliner, THEN overhaul the finish rings of the cabinsides windows, ALL BEFORE putting the glass in. All of this stuff is approaching completion, but has to be in a sequence to avoid other costly delays. Boats are a never-ending source of entertainment. [emoji4]

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

This is where my three 80 panels are mounted on my SR37, two on the sterncastle roof and one on a rail above the rudder. I'm probably going to put some more panels on the cockpit tent roof and/or maybe expand the rack on the aft rail above the rudder.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

I love my vessel, but I think I'm going to let her go.
"There is nothing so stable as change"
I do hope she goes to a good home. It comes with almost a complete set of blue prints from The browns. It has a rich cruising history.
Bitter sweet for me. She deserves to be Voyaged.
It's on the forum. Idk how to link it but, yea. Click image for larger version
