    Greetings. I thought I'd share some pictures of a trimaran I designed and built a few years ago which I've named "Best Guess". This link goes to a latest-and-greatest page showing its current state:

    The "Further refinements" section mid-way down has the most recent photos. It's been an evolution, as I know many boats are. The home page for this boat has links to the original construction, and to some weird ideas that I tried, and that didn't work (ama planes):

    Anyway, thought some of you would be interested. Enjoy!

    Welcome to the forum! Very interesting design thanks for sharing it here. The seats look very comfortable-neat idea. I like the canted amas. Looks like she sailed well with the Hobie amas-any video with the new ama design?
