    What is the title on the publication?
    I have a few, but will have to look hard for them.

    Andy,

    I took a look on the AYRS site and I don't have a copy.
    Its interesting, I had a partial page picture of the same drawing, but the one I had did not have the folding ability. I've lost that long ago

    It was in a pamphlet of "50 Multihull Designs You can Build"
    The guy who published it and represented Crowther designs way back posts on either this forum or WoodenBoat forum and occasionally offers to sell plans for Crowther trimarans like the Buchaneer 24.
    He might have more information.

    Since the boat is 18' is that not enough to establish a scale for the drawing?

    The bunyip was 20 x 11 but I'm not sure if lock scaled the whole design down or selective parts the k25 main hull was only 2ft thick how narrow would lock go given they had perfect that over quite a few designs id feel better about the build if I could confirm just a bit more all good fun thanks for your help
