Jim, what is the angle of incidence of the main foil and rudder foil referenced to the static waterline? Looks like you're close to getting it right. Good Luck!

Hey Jim ......

Just trying to compare some 1 meter designs.

Thanks, Dick

Just a bump of this thread from early 2016..... Would be great to see some posts on status of ordered boats.

Also would request personal info of owners --- especially here in US so I can build an owners contact list. Please send to me via personal message.

Funny, I was just thinking about this the other day. Was thinking of putting together some 3D printable files for cross beam/hull connectors.

When my original MultiONE tri was shipped back after what appears to be some major abuse, I found one of my carbon tubes glued to rear port float had been torn loose. Closer inspection showed the tube let go along glue joint BUT the carbon tube was also split!!!

It was like the owner (or??) took the rear carbon cross tube and pulled it loose, (or it was hit from the rear by the bow of another competitor) causing the glue joint to fail and at the same time to split the tube lengthwise. Whatever or however, it took a hell of a hit to break the WEST SYSTEM and split a wrapped carbon tube to bust the rear crossbeam loose from the float. On top, the former owner asked me to consider return of the cost------after two years use and the damage. Obviously I declined and have a refurbish project for summer. Will keep and sail it to promote multihulls locally.

UPDATE: further inspection indicates cracks on all three bows (maybe hit retaining wall), no hatch cover returned, missing extra "T-rudder", and large crack across bottom of main hull (maybe a grounding) - so it looks like it will be next summer sailing season before all is corrected. Haven't looked at sails and rigging yet. Will try to get a start on this until snow flies - which might not be too long. Leaves are falling already.

I hate to see a precious boat so badly treated or sailed. This person, who returned a boat so damaged has no business in our sport. And to have the nerve to ask for his investment back. Really?

Just try to do that with a car dealer!

Fortunately, this was my prototype and I had more heart than money invested in it. Had I not sold it, I probably would have opted to build a second hull and see how it would have sailed as a NACRA F-18 catamaran "look alike".

I've already used the Dremel with a cone shaped grinding "burr" and cut back the portion of the hull with the bow and ready to build up the areas (about 1/2 inch wide) with strips of 1/2 oz. epoxy/cloth. Strips getting wide closer to the exterior hull surface. Will add some micro balloons and then resurface area. If weather holds, I hope to get all the glass work done before snow and maybe hit our local pond for a few minutes to test sail. I did find the mast base was missing and the base of the carbon mast had pushed through the top of the hull. Found it loose and rolling around in bottom of hull. Just another repair but not a difficult one.

A cool looking set of hulls. It will be good, Dick, if you can get it out on the water before the water there is iced over. But if you can't then take your time and get it "right" for next season. I think everyone on this site would like your phoenix rise from that destruction.

Thank you.

Just in contact with a former F48 owner who is currently building an F48 catamaran. I've invited him to join the Forums, and keep us updated as he moves forward.

Where are you located (for reference)?
