Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Gday Migizi

I was surfing through Youtube and came across a video by John Marples. In it he uses a Searunner 34 to do research on Flettner rotors. To truck the boat he saws it into three. He goes through the story and there are pics. So the expert has already done what you want to do.



cheers

Phil

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Looks like a CC. Composite is more marketing friendly. CC actually takes knowledge to understand, plus then you would have to talk about wood.

It’s a Marples CC 40 called Traveler, at one point owned by multihull builder Doug Jaynes.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Yeah, i thot she looked like Traveler, then i saw the name on the stern quarter. The rigid dodger and the bimini look familiar as well. The man that bot her from Doug Jayne, took her south on the ICW and got stuck on a sandbar. Dunno what happened after that. She seems to be in NY now.

I've read thru that entire Riki build blog page....which I think was CC40 or larger. Thought it was a pretty cool technique but I felt tired just thinking about how long that would take.

I wonder where that Riki tri is these days.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Decent SR 31 sails free to a good home:

I've replaced most of the sails on my Searunner 31, and would like to find a home for the original suit. They are old and stretched, but serviceable, clean, and built to the standard dimensions, with bags and sheets included. All hanks work smoothly, no tears but some loose stitching and small stains.

Sailrite has the measurements here. They were built by A. Lam of Hong Kong and sold by Vancouver Sail Supply.



I have a Main (with removable slides for external track), a Genoa, Yankee, Staysail and Mule.
I'm keeping the spinnaker.


If you're planning to use them on a boat I'd be willing to deliver to OR / WA for a case of beer and a tour of your project, or you can pay shipping from Olympia, WA. Contact me by PM or @crosstrees on Telegram.



If there are no takers by spring I'll plan to consign or donate them.

A nice post! For a case of beer you are donating them, no tax write off however. I hope you find them a good home not with a dreamer.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Seems to be two boats. One is Larry's boat, Hybeaa in Maine and the other, Sovereign Spirit is in Washington state. Both need attention. Larry's boat is currently not for sale as i understand it. i believe that Kirk's boat is for sale, altho i don't believe that Sovereign Spirit is his boat. Correct me if i am wrong.

Re: Trimaran - Especially Searunner - Owners

Looks interesting, I texted him for some additional info. The engine looks rough, wouldn't be surprised if it requires more than an alternator. And if the cockpit floor has rotted, all that NW rain probably ingressed into the interior.

The JoAhna K is a sweet looking boat. I hope I picked up the name right.
