    Cyclone,

    I was quite interested in the CC23, but no one ever comments on it. Do you have experience and are you willing to talk about the boat?

    I couldn't get anything out of Marples except the basic one page description.

    Re: the CC23
    I have not yet completed my boat so I can't comment on performance. The build itself has taken a long time for a variety of reasons but none due to the design itself. The plans are very good in terms of accurate measurements and the fairness of the hulls produced. Much of the step-by-step process is left to the builder. I was fortunate to find a source of 1/8" X 6" western red cedar veneers for the hull panels and the panel making process went well. I previously posted that I was trying to find a new home for the panel mold but that is gone now. I have saved all the plywood templates that I made of the full size patterns if anyone is interested. I will be using a Hobie 18 mast boom and sails with modifications to allow roller-boom reefing/furling. My build gallery is here-

    Updated list let me know if I've missed any current boats

    I realise some boats like the F24 and C24 fit the criteria but trying to keep list current with either production boats that can be purchased or plans.

    Had several designs that fitted the criteria gone from his webpage now
    but you may still be able to buy a planset if you email him.
    There was the ST7 cuddy trimaran and the Essential 8 trimaran
    http://www.graingerdesigns.net/
    I find the change of direction baffling as his trimaran raceboats are still
    doing well and often punching above their weight. Small trimarans such
    as the original Riverside Oaks (Now called Moving Finger), Bare Essentials,
    Silent Running and Trilogy are still in the winners circle frequently.

    For Ray Kendrick there is quite a range, under the scarab title it goes from 6.5 m to 8 m and then there is the Avalon 8.2 m. 5 trimarans in all.

    I've updated the other list as well. I'm starting to think that we should move this list over to the wiki anyone conversant on how to do that?

    ==============
    I'm opposed to moving this thread at this time-maybe in a year or so. I don't even know how to access the wiki and I'll guarantee a lot of others would be lost as well. Lets build this thread in Multihulls where it is doing very well!

    Agreed, I was thinking more of putting a copy of the list there to add some more content to the multihull section but did not word it well.

    Speaking of people who do not know how to get to the wiki.

    How do you get to the wiki? What is it?

    Sometimes I wish I was not so ignorant about other web options.

    Thanks

    HASYB your right that Nic Bailey trimaran is indeed beautiful I like the runaway as well. The tri-cat looks like coffin yachting at it's best! :D

    I agree that having the list on the 2 site may be help full for people.
    Out of curiosity which site would get more use this site or wiki? May be it would be a good idea to concentrate on one site at present.

    I would have to agree with you Upchurchmr, my self included, by wiki do you mean wikipeadia or is it a different thing.
