    Just to get back on topic--which is 22 to 24 ft Trimarans.
    I have a spare set of Buccaneer 24 Trimaran plans for sale if anyone is interested. :?:

    It's A SC24MC For Me

    For a 24' Tri, how about a Jim Brown/John Marples SC24MC?
    Here are the line drawings for my SC24MC:

    I'm building one and another member from this forum has just ordered a set of plans. :D
    All ply and timber can be bought from your local timber yard and most of the hardware can be bought from your local hardware store or/and you can make the part in your workshop :D

    BILL.
    How are you getting on with your SC24.?
    You did say you would try to have it ready in time for Christmas.
    Are you getting ahead.? We would love to hear.
    Cheers. OS7

    Sc24mc

    G'day OS7,

    Because of health problems and other goings-on in my life, I have not been able to start building. It now looks, because of my health, like my SC24MC will not be built...Well, not by me at any rate :( That being the case I have no use for the 19' cat or the SC24MC plans...I bought the 19' cat to use it's 30' mast, boom and sails on the SC24MC but as I have said, it now looks like I'll not be building the Tri :(

    Cheers OS7,

    Bill AU

    PS. If any of you are thinking of buying or building a boat...Don't leave it to long! Go do it NOW! If you don't, you too may find yourself in my situation.

    Tough break, Bill. Your "go out and do it" comments are heartfelt and poignant. I hope things change for you and you can come back to the boat project in the near future.

    JEEZ Bill.
    Sorry to hear that. :eek:
    It's rotten that these things happen.
    I know how you must feel, because the same thing happened to me just as I was about to start building a Woods "Gwahir".

    I am sure you can offload the plans, but what about the 19' Cat. What design is it?
    Cheers. Paddy. :D

    G'day Paddy,

    Yes mate, I'm sure I'm not the only pea in the pod to have health problems, it can happen to the best of us. One of my little dogs died on my lap last Sunday night...It was straight out of the blue and she was only 10 and a 1/2 years old, still a pup...She never smoked in her life but she died from blood cancer and it killed her in 24 hours!

    Anyway Paddy, the 19' Cat I have is a Quest B3, the Quest Cats are Aussie designed for home builders and the one I have is ply and in need of renovations...The mast, boom and two sails, main and jib are in great nick...Let me know if your interested mate :D

    Cheers,

    Bill AU

    Sorry Bill.
    Since I lost the use of my left arm I am not asked out to sail/race any more, and boatbuilding is also "Out the Window". Just a fact of life. :rolleyes:

    We took a few boatloads of injured troops sailing for the Army and a few had to spend the time in bunks but there is always a way.....Did anyone continue the foundation started by Tristan Jones after his amputation when he modified the trimaran?
    In this size range I'm still pestering the Nicols to print some Clipper plans.....for a daysailer in a area with shallows the keel and ama skegs make sense.

    Sc24mc

    G'day Paddy,

    Quick update, I have not tried to offload the SC24MC plans or the Quest B3 Cat, crook or not and no-matter what the wife says...I still want to build that Tri...If I can manage it. I have sold a lot of other gear, including my second love, my old 1988, 3.6 Daimler, 5 new tyres for the Daimler, tool sets and other mech' gear, so I now have loads of empty space in my workshop. ;)
    I'll be going back into hospital in January, for a inspection ;) or/and another operation...I'll know on the day...They tell me nothing before hand!
    Anyway, as I have said, I still want to build the SC24MC. So tonight I wrote to John Marples asking if I can use the 19' hulls from the Cat for the amas on the Tri, if I can use the Cat hulls, that would save me a fair bit of time as I would only need to build the main hull and beams for the Tri.

    I may be a silly old day-dreaming cudger but I hate giving-up on anything...Specially if I haven't given it a fair go. I feel sure I can build the Tri...If I'm carefull and don't trying to do things that are just to much for me but...One thing I don't want to do is to start and not finish the Tri! :(

    Anyway, I'll wait and see what John has to say about me using the Cat hulls for the Tri, then I'll go from there.

    Cheers, Bill

    Sc24mc

    G'day Johnny,

    I sent you a PM today, letting you know what gives with me and my SC24MC :)
    I've also sent John Marples another message to get some clarification on the Akas. I'll let you know what he says.
    Let me have your SKYPE contact details and I'll call you one morning for a chin-wag :)

    Cheers for now.

    Bill

    rigg from tiki 21 ?

    Hello All, i am new on the forum,after building a tiki 21 i am keen to build a buccaneer 24.
    Hello Old sailor,you are experionsted with the buc 24,could i use a tiki 21 rigg on it ?
    it has no spreaders,so only the ama will have to keep it up,this wingsail is nice with a mast from just 6,45 easy to set up and a low point of pressure.
