    Hello all,
    I have been lurking on this forum as a guest for awhile now and thought I should make it official. I have pulled some valuable info while planning and building my own sailing kayak trimaran.
    Most of the planning was reverse engineered from the adventure islands, the sail is actually from an adventure island. I figured I should share a few pictures of the result, I have had a ton of fun sailing it around the Puget Sound and it gets plenty of attention when I beach it.
    If you're interested feel free to ask questions about any part of it. I'm really proud of it and will take it out any chance I get. 20190928_135247.jpg 20190928_135247.jpg 20190928_134519.jpg

    She does look very impressive indeed!
    Do you have any photos of her under way under sail?
    What is the maximum speed (approx) that you have reached with her?

    I wish I did, I've always been to nervous to pull my phone out and try to record as I'm usually pretty busy managing the sail. The goal next year is to have more equipment, go-pro and such so I can make some propper videos.
