    I hope to build a trimaran, and I'm still in the research stage of the project. I have decided my first build will be the sewn ply method. My boat building skills are at the beginner level so a simple design is a must. I was intrigued by the process of cylinder construction and the idea that one half mold can be used to create all 3 hulls. (marples for 30 example).

    I was wondering if anyone had and experience with the Kurt Huges 23' trimaran .... both building it and sailing it.
