Don and Marty,

We are in the process of moving to a new house in the next two weeks and all my gear has been placed in the shed as we will have to move it from here anyway, so I will take a couple of pics tomorrow and post them tomorrow night, you may then get a better idea of what I mean....

Hi Roy, so you are moving house mate . Let me know the map reference of the new one as it makes it easier for me smart weapons.

Best of luck with the move .

haha ive had pics of this idea for months and a cpl videos of it sailing are on rcu and the guys told me how its done its easy.no bolts no glue just tape on the floats etc also they are bendable so you can bend the bow up in chop with the beams been flexi enough so in rough water they give a little making it very hard for the boat to pitch over.seems to work as hes had it out in 35 mph winds and never pitched!!.also keep the floats slightly in front of the main hull this makes in nearly impossible for her to pitch the guys been experimenting for over a year with this idea and it works great according to him and another well respected guy who built tris comercially.by the way stavros it was me who gave you the idea in the first place when i posted the pics of this boat lol !! ;D

Roy

Thanks for the photo - its all clear now - looks an interesting idea - may try it out to see if it works on the Tri. ( Sorry for the delay in answering - been away since late February cruising the Arabian/Red Sea/Med.)

I went to Boracay (Philippines) early this month and they sail these beautiful plywood and bamboo trimaran.

I'm very tempted to make a model of one of these after my present projects. Do you think it might work without big changes to the original shape ?
