    How about this; foil stabilised tri can be built out of Double Diagonal ply (or cedar or foam etc.) Half a metre longer than Ozone but performance probably only limited by the weight of your right foot.

    there is also a version with a raised cabin and a foot or so more headroom.

    Yes i have heard some about it and it seems realy interesting to me.
    The only problem before i decide is that i would like to se a few pics about the boat. But it seems impossible to find either pics or movieclip on the boat.

    Maybe i order some study plans just to se if i can get a better view about the boat from there.

    I feel more and more tempted ordering plans for the Stinger MK 2 Boat.

    Still i lack a lot of information about it.

    Pictures, Videos, Building reports...and more.

    Does anyone know if it actually has been built.?

    I bought study prints for this design about 18 months ago. At that stage I was told 2 had been built but they had no photos. Suggest you contact the company and talk to Anthony Stanton who is familiar with the design.

    It didn't have enough interior for me but it would certainly be an exciting boat to sail. Depending on materials chosen for hulls beams and rig it needn't be exorbidant (relative to other designs of similar performance) to put together either. It conforms well to the classic Newick 2 out of 3 rule.

    Thankyou for that info, I will contact him.

    This night i also ordered study plans of that boat.
    How long did it take from that you ordered the plans until you got them.?

    That sounds great expect from one thing...
    I don't know anything about that rule :cool:

    He was talking about the attributes of Hi-performance, comfort/accomodation, economy. Choose any 2 ;) cause you can't get all 3.

    I think given that you are worried primarily about the feeling of speed from the boats, you should perhaps not be looking for plans, but be looking to hitch a ride on some boats. Get a feeling for what they're like and get used to sailing them. If you're not that experienced a sailor you could find yourself in trouble quite quickly on some highly strung racing machine.

    Okay Neptune, seeing as all the other has been and no hoper designers are exhibiting here, here is what you really need .... a "C Class" foiler with miserable accommodation (it will be a relief to come up on deck) - comes in either soft or hard sail rig - I'd suggest the soft one for a start - repeat, this is tongue in cheek you guys. Having said that I'd doubt you'd find a faster boat in this, or quite a bit larger, size range. The last image is main hull view.

    Yes Joe, you are completely right that speed is a concern.
    My biggest problem is that i am not a experienced boat builder, therefore i need my project to be not to complicated.

    You are absolute right that i am not an very experienced sailor, but i know the basics and i think that if i just take it easy then I think i can learn to sail a not to demanding cat or tri.

    And don't worry, i will have some sailings with multihulls before the long time comes when i have got enough with money to build and launch my trimaran, thank you for caring and giving me that good portion of advice :)

    I have had two boats the last five years, and both of them sucks when it comes to performance, the one i have now less than the one i had before.

    The last thing i want is a family boat on training-wheels even if it performs way better than all monohulls i ever will see.

    I prefer a steep learning-curve in favor to that i in a short time wish i had a better craft, so i think that i am quite sure about what i want out of sailing.

    Hard wind water in my face and half way between panic and relief.:D

    Gary.
    Is it your DT2.?
    It looks very nice.
    If it lives up to your words then it will be an awesome craft.
    I would love to build that boat, and eventually even more to sail it.

    Do you have any plans ready.?
    Do you sell them.?

    It seems as it could be a boat that i for sure will keep for life.

    Whoops Neptune, I wasn't really being serious. However I was intending to start building this version of Demon Tricycle (

    Sorry, didn't mean to send that (this has happened before with embarrassing consequences) .... starting again, as I was saying .... anyway I've been too busy to begin construction of Devils 3 - however, here are some main hull plans. There is also an Open 8.5 version, very similar, but no hard rig, designed before I realized Open actually meant Restricted for the local 8.5 rule - but enough said about that.
