My Ron Given Gulf Tiger in the 80's.

Gulf Tiger. Dawn Treader sailing soon after launching 1980's.

Historical multihulls-gulf-tiger-sailing-.png

And the same boat last year.

Historical multihulls-15112011458.jpg

The Gulf Tiger design (Ron Given) was intended for the international 28 ft, 8.5m class in the late 70's and 80's.

A very good design for the time, though somewhat under rigged compared with the GBE. A lovely boat to sail and for minimalist cruising.
We had a lot of fun in the boat.

Unfortunately this size class did not take off until much more recently, with the 8.5metre class in NZ. http://www.multihull.org.nz/open-8.5...ction-1023.htm

Like many people we did not have enough money to sell the boat and buy a family cruising size boat. We made the decision to lengthen and put a bridgedeck on the Gulf Tiger. Not something I think Ron would approve of, but needs must.
Keeping the original rig and hulls made the project a lot cheaper, but much more time consuming.
14 years of professional boat and house building meant the boat sat in the back yard until a year ago when I went back to a real (corporate) job. Made a lot of progress since. She should be in the water by next summer.

In time for the Grandkids?

Amazing achievement, thought so at the time but even more impressed after reading about this adventure/craziness - but hey, no page 24.
I knew Robin when he was a kiwi in Auckland and owned his own designed and built Cloud trimaran, beautiful boat - but later, after being sold, lost on rocks at Mayor Island.

Robin Chamberlain is one of multihulls unsung legends, probably more unknown in the Northern Hemisphere. His Cirrostratus 10 trimaran is not unlike the Horstman concept but a bit more modern and in my opinion probably a much better boat. Pity there was only one model at 10m.

The pictures of the Trimarans above strongly remind me of the historic Newick winged Val's. No words needed IMO.
Cheers

Hi HASYB,
Yes I'm familiar with the Newicks they were probably the original of the type, the Cirro dates about 1982, I think. I like the proportions of the Cirro better, more useable volume as well. I like the curves of the Newick hulls but they are very fine and are dwarfed by the crossbeam. Legendary boats all the same.
I have some study drawings if you would like me to post them ?
RR

Thanks RR, have the study drawings myself but wouldn't mind you posting them.
Now we're mentioning Dick Newick I guess these aren't out of line either.
Gulfstreamer, Moxie and Cheers.
If anybody got some nice stories about these beauties I certainly would like to hear them.

Thanks Yips.
Reading it back I think multiple interpretations are possible.
What I intended to say with no words was referring to the pictures I posted.

One of the guys in the club has a Cirrostratus trimaran it tends to be towards the back of the fleet when racing but looks incredibly stable and has quite huge accommodation below deck. The more the wind blows the better this boat seems to like it. We are hoping to get Robin Chamberlain along to talk at one of our meetings this year. If we manage to tee it up I'll post details for anyone who might like to come.
