    Fabulous day on Saturday. Little wind early on. 8 - 10 knots filled in after midday. Hoping for a nice mild winter with plenty of good sailing days. The cat is Graeme Delaveau's (designer of mine) own boat, with new rig and sails.

    I can remember when Superbird to Cruz was called just Superbird ... and the catamaran was a near sister to this cat, Supplejack. The Tennant designs were launched in 1977, but obviously there have been some Delaveau changes; here is SJ on Home beach in mid-Waitemata area for a bottom clean, 1979.

    Hi Greg

    It was great to see you out yesterday on your fabulous yellow trimaran.
    She really does have a decently sized and very comfortable cockpit that doesn't compromise the cabin accommodation, which is surprisingly voluminous and usefull with plenty of sitting headroom and I think around 5'7'' headroom. She is also an exciting and dependable performer and I don't think you've even had a reef in the main yet.
    Looking forward to my next invite out on 'Mysterex'.;)

    Very nice trimaran,

    Looking at GD's 6.4 and 7.6 designs, it appears yours is a bit of both.

    Would you be so kind as to tell me more about the details - or provide a link if you have details online.

    Any building pics and pics of the interior?

    LOA? BOA? Weight? Payload?
    Anything unique about the build process? Was it an easy build?

    Thanks very much,
