    Not a clue.
    I occasionally have marathon sessions of searching the web using various search engines, and I am a member of quite a few boat forums.
    Sometimes I will find a thing, only to have the website vanish a few weeks later. It may have even come from here. boatdesign.net is wide and deep, and not everything is filed where you would expect it to be.

    It's also in the thread "Seeking info on Tri-Star or Piver trimaran 23 to 27 Feet" in post #37, but that was also posted by you . . :D

    Cheers,

    PS - but the drawing is much bigger pictured there...

    Thanks to invaluable help from Sea Stallion and Red Ruben the noted boats plans are just that much nearer to availability.. Just a little more patience folks. :cool:

    Did you get them from the German owner of the boat in Holland or from the Texas Gulf Coast Multihull library . . ? ? Sea Stallion's assistance makes me think the latter as I think I've read they came with his boat and he brought them there...

    Cheers,

    The proposed alterations to the transom in that dwg in post#176 should be ignored.
    They serve no advantage to the B--- as designed and are a waste of time and money. The --28 does not drag it's transom and with the underslung rudder a tilting outboard motor bracket bolts onto the transom very conveniently. It is definitely not just a "stretched --24".

    I have just found a whole bunch of photos of B28 #1 and #7 under construction.
    I will get my computer guru son to scan them and then I'll post them on this thread.

    Build photos are not much help without the plans.
    Progress finding plans is stymied right now.
    Hans Brepohl has plans but is only interested in selling them with the boat.
    Sea Stallion, also has plans, but understandably is not interested in parting with them at this time as he is restoring his own --28.
    I have had plans blown up from A4 prints of S.S.s JPGs, but these are fuzzy and the small notes are thus indecipherable. Only the line dwgs of the hull frames are any good.:(

    It is just amazing that we came so close to getting these plans. Can we not offer to make a copy and then return them to the owner. We all want to build boats which is a good thing. This is not a profit enterprise.

    Bob. I did just that and offered to cover all the costs involved but still no joy.

    Hans is in Germany, boat is in Holland, asking price is € 8,000.-- (last update July 22, 2011)

    See for info about the boat & plans post #57 -- #62 -- #65. Hielan visited the boat on June 13, 2011, see his findings in post #68.

    Cheers,

    Holland

    Thats too bad. It would be nice just to have a set of plans on record before they are gone. Too bad it's overseas.

    plans

    I guess I don't quite understand, did SS on the gulf coast have a set of plans? If not, I wonder what kind of progress he is making with his rebuild- Or would he like to sell it:cool: B
