    Has anyone built yet a trimaran, very similar to weta?

    When you say similar are you talking about dimensions, construction method?

    It would be best to be similar in speeds and dimensions.

    It seems like a complicated and sophisticated method of construction. Are you looking specifically for a trimaran or catamarans work too? For example, look at the Tornado.

    I built a seaclipper 16 for my second build. The plans and support were top notch. It uses a hobie 14 rig and mainsail. I added a jib it made a big difference in performance. It's a little bigger than the weta. Easy to set up .. the ama's swing out so stepping the mast is the biggest part. Good performer and forgiving in my opinion. Economical both in materials and labor.

    Catamarans work too.

    Is there something like a seaclipper 16, but with free plans?

    Oldmulti is offering sound advice. Very small price for plans. The guidance from the designer is priceless. Good luck.
