    Plans

    Yes I have printed off a full set of plans, with full size templates.

    One set from a common print shop were out of wack. A second set printed by an architectural office were spot on.
    Both used the same set of pdf's from a memory stick.
    Are the building instructions and materials lists the ones I supplied ?
    Here is the ones I have, sorry all one file.

    Thanks R.R.
    Those are exactly the ones I have.
    Now everyone should be able to access complete sets for their own use. :D

    Thanks

    I am also interested in the 33 plans- particularly the float details. Thanks for the combined efforts of everyone here.

    See the penultimate sentence. She was listed since April-11-2010 so I guess she's sold. But the pics are still online, maybe the guy knows where the plans have gone. She was listed from; Burlington, Vermont, 05401, United States. I've posted about this here and here.

    Good luck !

    Maybe they have more info here -- link -- link -- link --

    33 details

    Thanks for the links- but.
    I have been looking at and might make an offer on a 33, and if I do, I have to fit it to a trailer. It would be easier if I had a set of the frame sheets from the plans, but I will manage without. The boat is 600 miles away in the water, so measuring it is not practical. It is not that important, I was mostly interested in the overall height of the floats so I could guestimate how high to position the main hull. The floats have to ride over the fenders and below the deck/cabin overhang of the main hull. I do about the same thing with my 24, but the 33 is BIG. Every inch matters :) To be practical with our trailering restrictions, the total load has to be less than 13' high and 12' wide. It will work, but I have to have the trailer supports set up at least close to the correct positions or end up spending a lot of expensive crane time adjusting on the spot.
    Folding tris really do make sense:rolleyes:

    The 40 is still for sale, but might be too much ?

    Cheers,

    Way too much boat

    Yes, I had seen those ads. The 33 is more Buc than I need, the 40 is WAY too much boat. Also, not demountable, at least without a chain saw:rolleyes:. The "stock" 33s with alloy crossbeams do come apart for transport, even if not very easily. Owners seem to agree on about a day to take one apart or reassemble one, (with practice), which seems about right from my experience with my smaller 24. A friend has a Reynolds 33 cat on a custom trailer at our club, and being a little simpler, it can be done in a few hours, sometimes quicker than my boat. Since we sail on an inland lake, we have gotten very good at transporting boats.

    Bruce, would it be feasible to bolt some timber cross rails to your trailer, maybe 2X6's, and take some sheets of 3/8 or 1/2" ply with you to screw onto them.

    You could pre-cut them 'roughly' based on best guess and then only have to trim the more accurate shape to support the main hull and floats once on site.

    Then call the crane once your set and ready...

    I'm guessing at the strengths required, but I transported a 250kg ply boat on a box trailer using this method (only I used 2x4's and htey were 'just' ok....

    I didn't even bolt the cross beams to the trailer, simply clamped them in place, and the tie-down straps held it all together. 300mi journey, nothing shifted or broke...

    Thats exactly how we originally transported the B33 that Bruce is talking about. Worked fine for us. :D

    transport

    Yep :)
    I will have to be there to decide if I can load the floats right side up or down. Turning them over could save about a foot of height, but might not be necessary, and they are kind of clumsy and fragile to handle. I am assuming they weigh about 500 lbs each- requiring a forklift or crane- not man power. The trailer for this trip is an "adjustable" boat hauling trailer and is not set up too well for a tri, but it comes with a truck and driver that make it a good choice for a 700 mile trip.
    I still haven't decided yet to actually purchase the 33, but it at least seems more reasonable now although it still hasn't shrunk.;)

    Did anyone compile a list of available plan sets?
