I know - just jerking a chain that was hanging there.

Very little interest in multihulls of any size still. Thought the interest might take off with the AC Cup, but am speculating that no one wants to be the first or second one on the water with little or no competition - and most builders are still happy with one hull and any more is, well ...., a chore.

BTW - there is a Formula 48 (Nightmare design) that is just coming up for sale and is located in Ohio in case anyone is interested. Send me (by PM) your email address and I will forward to owner/seller and you and he can cut your own deals.

...that is a mystery to me. Admittedly, multihulls aren't really my thing but I am surprized that there is not more interest- being a model, we are not talking about a huge investment and all it takes is a few like minded people in the same place to have some fun...

Wow, that is awesome. Wish we could see some of these boats sailing out here on the west coast. Hull is all carbon? Ryan

A little video from yesterday testing in 16-22 with a top end TWS of 33.
Sails were "B" jib and "A" main. I wanted to see how far up range we could go if needed, it was pretty insane but the boat handled it very well. No nosediving and even with me trying to film with an iphone and sail tacking in the waves was good.

With that said I apologize for the shaky camera work, this was shot on a floating dock and it was rough out!

mast


What do you use for a mast? reconditioning an old AC boat and she needs a new mast.

We make our own masts, carbon over a mandrel. They section measures 12X28mm depending on lay up, weight 8 ounces for a 93" tube.
The section would be very good for an AC class, pretty sure we have more sail area and righting moment with our design & have sailed in up to 30 knots with the rig with no failures.
