    I'm contemplating building a small trimaran as a fast camp cruiser in Long Island Sound. I have a set of Supercat 17 hulls to use and am considering a Yngling for the center hull.
    I'd be essentially recreating the Soling Trimaran on a slightly smaller scale.

    Being that this would be my first build and having no experience with Trimarans,
    I would appreciate any advice you might have.

    Thanks!

    It may work as a camp cruiser but it will not be a "fast" camp cruiser. Stick with a proven new build or used boat.

    How does that work, I just click on New Posts or Most Recent.

    So is there a different title?
